Online Courses and Online Exam Policy

Clinicians starting their MDT credentialling journey with MICanada should be aware that the McKenzie Institute International has a policy requiring anyone that attends all of the McKenzie Credentialling Program courses online, to take an in-person Credentialling Exam when the time comes that they want to challenge the exam. Clinicians taking all their courses online should also be aware that the in-person exams will likely take place once annually in either Toronto or the surrounding area, Ottawa or Montreal. MICanada is encouraging registrants progressing through the McKenzie Credentialling Program, to attend at least one in-person course being offered in their local region. You will benefit from the in-person training/practical sessions, and you will most likely save from the additional travel costs involved to travel to the in-person examination site.

Patient Referrals / Profile Information

Attention ALL MDT trained clinicians! It is important for us to have your up-to-date place of practice information on file. When patients and other MDT trained clinicians contact the branch seeking a referral to a qualified MDT trained clinician, we rely on your profile information being accurate. If your career path has changed and you are no longer seeing private patients, please state "not seeing private patients" under place of employment, this will stop us from reaching out to you with unnecessary requests. To update your information simply go to the McKenzie Institute Canada website, login, then go to VIEW PROFILE (top right of website after logging in) and use the form provided to update your work information. Don't forget to check the section at the bottom that states we can pass your professional contact information on to others as needed.  We do not provide this information to anyone other than patients seeking help or other clinicians looking to refer a patient on because their work situation requires it.  Please, don't delay updating your profile, as this information is crucial for patients seeking MDT care in Canada.
