Police Records Check

Throughout your medical degree, you will serve vulnerable populations. In an effort to protect these vulnerable people against potential risk of harm, the Ontario Faculties of Medicine and many clinical agencies require that you provide confirmation of the absence of a criminal conviction or outstanding criminal charges. At the beginning of each subsequent academic year in the MD program, you will be required to sign a criminal records and disclosure form to confirm that there has been no change in the information contained in the police information check. The police information check, including a Vulnerable Sector Screening, is required. Offer of admission is contingent upon provision of the above checks, at your expense. NOSM will review any files presented with a “Not Clear” check to determine what action, if any, will be taken. For more information about obtaining a police information check with Vulnerable Sector Screening, please contact your local police agency.
