Practice Ready Assessment – Newfoundland and Labrador (PRA-NL) is a 12-week clinical field assessment (CFA) during which a candidate is placed on the Education Register and is assessed for readiness for practice under a provisional medical license in Newfoundland and Labrador.

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 (


  1. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Newfoundland and Labrador (CPSNL) must deem you eligible for a provisional license in Family Medicine before you can apply to PRA-NL. However, this determination of eligibility by the CPSNL does not guarantee an applicant will meet the PRA-NL mandatory requirements or be recommended for a 12-week CFA.
  2. PRA-NL is not a training program.
  3. Applicants can have a maximum of two PRA attempts in total in Canada (note: an attempt is considered as starting a 12-week CFA).
  4. If a candidate passes the 12-week CFA, PRA-NL provides no promise, warranty or condition that they will be able to meet the requirements of the CPSNL to receive a license to practice as a physician in Newfoundland and Labrador or elsewhere in Canada.
