Canadian Society of Medical Evaluators (CSME) and the Canadian Academy of Psychologists in Disability Assessment (CAPDA) are pleased to announce our inaugural CMLE and C-CAT re-certification program.
The purpose of the Recertification in Medicolegal Expertise (CMLE and C-CAT) is to harmonize and improve quality standards for competent, independent practice as a medical expert in various domains of practice in Canada. The Recertification Program assesses the minimal competencies necessary to practice as a medical legal expert across a wide range of clinical scenarios pertinent to pediatric, adult and geriatric patient populations. The Recertification 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.
