Credentialing Services

MD, CM degree verifications are processed through Credentialing Services. There is a $60 fee per education verification request. Please allow a four-week processing period starting from the date both the online payment and required documents have been received. Cheques are no longer accepted.

Important Documents

All payments must be accompanied by:

  1. A signed "Authorization to Release Information" form. This form is not provided by McGill University but must be obtained from the Board, Institution, or agency requesting credential verification. If the Board, Institution, or Agency does not provide such a form, the physician must submit a letter attesting that McGill University is authorized to release the requested information directly to the Board, Institution, or Agency.
  2. Licensing Board/Institution Credentialing Request Forms


MD, CM degree verification payments are processed through the Education Verification Request E-store. Once the request and payment have been received, you will be able to track the status of your credentialing request by using the “view request status” link provided in the confirmation email you will receive. Forms will be sent directly to the requesting organization.
