To practice medicine in Nunavut, you must be licensed by the Medical Registration Committee of Nunavut. The Committee meets every two weeks to consider applications.

To save time and effort, you may wish to request in writing that the Registrar of your home province/territory forward to the Nunavut Registrar electronic or original copies of your LMCC, medical degree, evidence of completion of appropriate post-graduate training, evidence of acceptable past medical practice and a current letter of good standing.
