Mandatory Vaccination Policy for all Visiting Learners – Effective February 7, 2022
Learners applying for visiting clinical placements:
In accordance with the advice of the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health, effective May 1, 2022, NOSM University has paused its COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for Staff, Faculty, Volunteers and Visitors and no longer requires proof of vaccination to enter NOSM U buildings. All employees are encouraged to receive their booster vaccine(s) before coming to campus to help protect themselves and those around them.
As Learners who engage in clinical placements through NOSM University are required to follow the COVID-19 vaccination policies of their clinical location, the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for Learners in Clinical Settings remains in effect.
As such, the Community Relations Unit will collect vaccination status and supporting documentation from all visiting learners during the credentialing process of the application. The teaching site safety requirements can be found on the NOSM University’s Response to COVID-19 site and is updated regularly based on the most relevant information provided by the community/teaching sites.
