Step 0 Medical examination

You have to schedule an appointment with the physician or a specialized nurse practitioner of your choice.

On the day of the appointment, bring the forms we enclosed with your letter for the physician or a specialized nurse practitioner to fill out and sign.

Finding a physician

We cannot help you find a physician, nor can we help you schedule an appointment more quickly. If you do not have a family physician, consult the government’s health and wellness portal to find a resource near your home that offers medical consultations without an appointment.

Finding a specialized nurse practitioner

You must contact your CISSS or CIUSSS to find out whether any primary care specialized nurse practitioners work in your area. In most cases, you must be registered on your region’s patient waiting list through your CISSS or CIUSSS. When spots open for new patients, you will be contacted. 

Schedule your appointment as soon as possible

It is important that you send us the Medical Examination Report (PDF, 298 KB) before the deadline indicated in your letter to avoid the suspension of your driver’s licence or your right to obtain one.
