Partial Comparability Assessment Review Panel

Responsible directly to the CSIMGE, the main role of the Partial Comparability Assessment Review Panel (PCARP) is to review, within a framework of appropriate clinical and professional standards, all assessments of Partially Comparable candidates on the Specialist Pathway. Based on this review, the Panel makes a recommendation to CSIMGE to confirm/not confirm the candidate’s Partial Comparability status having satisfactorily met all requirements of the 2012 Fellowship Program Specialist Pathway (Partial Comparability), which leads to eligibility for Fellowship.
