The Medical Council of America (MCA) Physician Credentials Repository is an online database where you can permanently store your international medical credentials. In addition to giving you access to a confidential, lifetime portfolio of your medical credentials, the Repository also provides an easy way to share those credentials with America medical regulatory authorities and other organizations registered with the MCA.

How the Repository is used


The Physician Credentials Repository is one of the many services offered through the online portal. Simply sign up for an account to get started. If you had a previous MCA-Online or Physician Credentials Registry of Canada (PCRC-Online) account, you can log in with your MCA or PCRA username and password.

Any international medical credential you submit for source verification through your account is automatically added to your portfolio in the Repository. Once a document is in the Repository, you can also request to have it translated into French and/or English.
