C-CAT Examination Regulations


To qualify to write the exam, an individual must belong to a regulated health professional: The exam sitting will be on [Sunday, March 25, 2018] and will be approximately 3 hours long.   Please see the C-CAT Examination Regulations CLICK HERE for further details around the curriculum outline and the examination structure.

 

 The purpose of the Certification in Catastrophic Impairment Evaluation (C-CAT)is to harmonize and improve quality standards for competent, independent practice as a medical expert within the specific area of Ontario Catastrophic determinations. The Certification Program assesses the minimal competencies necessary to practice as a medical legal expert in this field. The Certification Program is intended to be complementary to national standards of competence within a specific health care specialty, and enhance the competent, ethical, and professional practice as a medicolegal expert. The C-CAT is not intended to replace any existing College or Board regulatory functions, but rather to augment those processes. The vision for the C-CAT is to be recognized as the standard of quality for medicolegal experts undertaking these evaluations in accordance with Ontario law.
