One physician, one identifier, for a lifetime

Within Canada’s multi-faceted medical system, the accurate and reliable identification of individual physicians is a growing challenge. That is why the Medical Identification Number for Canada (MINC) was created.

MINC is a unique, lifetime identifier for all individuals who enter the Canadian medical education or practice system.

MINC is a valuable tool for any organization that maintains a physician database. With MINC, a Licensed User can ensure that all physicians are accurately identified in their own database – and in the databases of every other Licensed Users with whom they share or compare data.
