Hi I'm mbbs graduate from india with 5 yrs exp and my husband is Md med with 3 yrs exp. If we do not wish to practice medicine in Canada how to apply for PR? Is it still mandatory to appear for mcc exams or exemption from it ? Also how to first get credentials verified from mcc or Wes? I checked we are qualifying for 461 points? How to lodge an application. Please help

If you don’t want to practice medicine then you don’t have to. Get degrees assessed and take language tests to apply. 461 is not enough to get an invitation right now & it is not known whether scores will come down to 460.

Thanks for prompt reply. How can one increase scores ? I have 3+ exp and I can better my scores in language test too but apart from that what else can be done ? Also for qualifications to get assessed I have to make an account on physicians.ca

Are you married? And are you bilingual? If you aren’t then your score may be lower than 461. You can look at taking a masters in Canada. But to get a study permit you need to show why you need to do a masters in Canada and how it helps your career in your home country. And you don’t want to practice medicin?

If all your work experience is working as a doctor, then you will not be able to use any other profession as your primary profession. You need at least one year of continuous, full-time experience in another profession to qualify for FSW under that profession.

Because I did calculator with 67 points so I scored around 73 including spouse points for ielts.
I was asking about your CRS score because as a single person, you wouldn’t have that score of 461. If your spouse is younger than 30, is her score higher with her as the primary applicant? You have few options other than become fluent in French or further education? Your spouse could further her studies (masters).
