Academic Difficulty

Medical Training is Challenging!

There is a high volume of material to be learned, and residents at McMaster are challenged to identify what to learn, how to learn it, and when to learn it. This may require some adjustment in your learning and study strategies to ensure you are using the most effective and efficient methods.

Your program will offer additional program-specific resources for specialty exams.

MCCQE Part 1

The MCC website has preparatory resources and products for Part 1 (practice tests and exams for purchase). In addition, the exam objectives and how to use them as a study guide can be found here. If you are required to rewrite your MCCQE 1, it is recommended to thoroughly read through the information on the MCC website to gain a deeper understanding of what these exams are all about and how they work.
