Upon successful completion of both an approved training program and the Certification Examination in Family Medicine, you will be awarded Certification in Family Medicine and will be able to use the designation CCFP (Certification in The College of Family Physicians). You will then be responsible for maintaining these credentials through your ongoing membership in the CFPC and your participation in the College’s Maintenance of Certification Program (Mainpro+®).
The examination is conducted twice a year – in the spring and in the fall - in multiple centres across Canada, in both official languages.
Candidates will be involved in testing over a period of two days.
The CCFP test will compromise of:
- Written component: computer-based short-answer management problems (SAMPs), 6 hours in length (Thursday or Friday)
- Oral component:
- Five 15-minute simulated office oral exams (SOOs) (Saturday or Sunday)
