Credentialing made easy

NOTE: For M.D., C.M. degree verifications, please visit the Undergraduate Medical Education Credentialing Page.

All verification requests must include the following two (2) items:

1. Online request and payment

The request and payment are done online through our Credentialing E-store. Once the request and payment have been received, you will be able to track the status of your credentialing request by using the “view request status” link provided in the confirmation email you will receive.

For current trainees, as well as trainees who finished training within the last 12 calendar months, there are no fees except in the event that a duplicate or replacement certificate is requested for which the fee is $100 (McGill ID number has to be entered on the request form).

For previous trainees who finished training more than 12 calendar months ago:

Verification of training dates and program ONLY 


Verification of training dates, program and performance


Certificate duplicate or replacement


Please note that we do not have records for training that occurred prior to 1972. To verify training that occurred prior to 1972, please submit a request to the DPS office of the hospital where the training occurred.

2. Signed authorization to release information by the physician

In order to proceed with any request, the authorization form must be completed and signed. It can be mailed, faxed or emailed as per below.

Processing time

Please note that requests for verification will only be processed once the appropriate fee and the signed authorization to release information by the physician have been received.

If we have not received them within 3 months after the date of your application, your request for credentialing will be cancelled without refund.

It takes 8 weeks to process a complete request. Please note that no information is given out over the telephone.
