Practice Ready Assessment – Newfoundland and Labrador (PRA-NL) will assess eligible applicants applying for a provisional license in Newfoundland and Labrador. It will include a 12-week clinical field assessment to determine a candidate’s “practice-readiness” at a level of a Canadian-trained physician entering practice. Practice-Ready Assessment (PRA) is a pathway to practice in Canada that involves examinations and an in-practice clinical assessment. The National Assessment Collaboration (NAC) support this pathway via a pan-Canadian model, developing common standards, tools, and materials for PRA Programs across the country. 

PRA-NL is not a training program. Applicants are limited to applying two times to this or any other Canadian practice ready assessment program.

Proceeding through one phase does not guarantee progression to the next phase.

PRA-NL provides no promise, warranty or condition that, as a result of the candidate’s participation in the program, he/she will be able to meet the requirements of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Newfoundland and Labrador (CPSNL) to receive a license to practice as a physician in Newfoundland and Labrador or elsewhere in Canada.
