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.
