Why should i take the NAC Examination ?
The NAC Examination is required to apply to a Canadian residency program. The Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) accepts NAC Examination results as part of match application packages.
You must take the National Assessment Collaboration (NAC) Examination if you want to apply to a Canadian residency program. For information on the NAC Examination eligibility requirements, visit the Application and eligibility page.
The NAC Examination is not required to obtain the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada, and a pass does not guarantee a residency training position in Canada.
