Focus Education Centre of Canada was established on July 2nd 2013 in Mississauga, Ontario. Initially Focus Education Centre of Canada was started with English program where the students were prepared for their English Proficiency tests such as IELTS, CELPIP, TOEFL & MELAB which are required for College, University admissions and for Immigration purposes.
Focus Education Centre of Canada Inc. is a family owned and run business. Keeping in view the struggles new professional immigrants like Doctor’s from other countries and realizing the dire need of a place where medical students get guidance, peer support and mentoring for their chosen career while receiving academic support, the Medical programs were added to the Teaching Schedule. The objective was to establish a place where IMG (International Medical Graduates) & CSA (Canadians Studying Abroad) could come and truly understand the pathway to Practicing medicine in Canada. Our goal was to create an environment in which students felt welcome.
We help the International Medical Graduate’s (IMG’s) and Canadian Studying Abroad (CSA’s) who were returning to Canada after completing medical studies overseas and prepare them for all the Canadian qualifying exams like MCCEE, NAC-OSCE, MCCQE1, MCCQE2 with CARM’s application and Americana board exams like USMLE Step 1 (United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 1) USMLE Step 2 CK, (United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 2) USMLE Step 2 CS, (United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 2 ) and in the process providing other IMG’s waiting for their residences placements opportunity to help other IMG’s & CSA was one of the main purpose of Focus Education Centre. Some incredibly dedicated and outstanding young aspiring physicians who are IMG’s or CSA’s themselves have joined our team in the capacity of Instructors
Since its inception, Focus Education Centre has helped a number of students identify their ‘learning disability’. This is done in a 3-hr pre-course interview with the medical director. The results of this session are shared with the instructors, who, while maintaining confidentiality, use this information to devise individual study strategies and schedules. This process not only improves the level of comfort between our students and faculty, it also increases the student interest and involvement in their studies.
Our goal at FECC is to empower students with the knowledge and tools to prepare for ANY medical exam they encounter during their medical career while at the same time, enhancing their skills in empathy and compassion.
