​Impact of COVID-19 pandemic on exam dates

Given the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, exam dates may be postponed or cancelled at short notice. If you are scheduled for an exam sitting that is impacted, you will be communicated with directly by email.

OSCE dates by stream

The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is typically offered twice a year: spring (Family and Pediatrics) and fall (Family and Adult).  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the spring (May) 2021 sitting of the exam was cancelled. As a result, the fall sitting of the exam will be for Adult, Family and Pediatric streams.

​Important: Family candidates will be assigned randomly to either the Saturday or Sunday exam. The assigned exam date will be communicated to each candidate in August 2021. ​​

Fall OSCE important dates

​​Important: The May 29, 2021 sitting of the OSCE has been cancelled. Learn more​.​
