The Canadian Society of Medical Evaluators (CSME) and the Canadian Academy of Psychologists in Disability Assessment (CAPDA) are pleased to announce our inaugural CMLE training and certification program. The purpose of the Certification in Medical-Legal Expertise (CMLE) is to harmonize and improve quality standards for competent, independent practice as a medical expert in various domains of practice in Canada. The Certification Program assesses the minimal competencies necessary to practice as a medical legal expert. 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 CMLE is not intended to replace any existing College or Board regulatory functions, but rather to augment those processes. The vision for the CMLE is to be recognized as the standard of quality for medicolegal experts in Canada and beyond.

The purpose of the Certification assessment is to evaluate the competence of a wide range of health care professionals in respect of relevant knowledge and judgement in the area of medicolegal evaluation. As part of this, several aspects of competencies need to be covered, including that of evidence-based knowledge and skills pertaining to a wide range of clinical scenarios, the application of core medicolegal reasoning principles and the ability to summarize this information in a constructive and clear manner for use by clinical and non-clinical
professionals alike.

Please see the CMLE Examination Regulations for further details around the curriculum outline and the examination structure.
