Clinicians and Practitioners

Certification vs Provider
What is the difference?


Having certification indicates holders have attended education sessions but have not been tested on clinical competency with patients.

“McGill Method Certified” candidates have attended McGills clinical courses and passed a knowledge competency test. They have not been assessed by professor McGill in their ability to create successful patients. Certified people are not intended to address people with substantial back pain mechanisms. Such people are directed to the McGill Method providers.

Becoming “McGill Method Certified” requires candidates to have taken McGill courses (in – person), specifically McGill 1, 2 and 3. An on-line exam must also be completed. The tracking of course attendance and the exam process is administered by RED – an independent management company. Candidates wishing to challenge the exam to become certified should go to link below where full details are provided.

A McGill Method provider is an elite clinician who has demonstrated clinical competency with patients.

Becoming a “McGill Method Provider” requires candidates to possess a clinical degree, attendance at the three McGill courses, and passing the exam having both written and live patient components. Providers will be actively referred patients from Professor McGill and passively referred patients from the backfitpro website and other sources.
