MD Program Academic Calendar: Online Only

The MD Program Academic Calendar is published online only. In the case of any discrepancy, the online version shall apply.

As needed, corrections and updates will be posted in the Amendments to this Calendar.

While the MD Program will take reasonable steps to ensure that students are aware of registration requirements, financial and academic deadlines, program requirements and regulations, etc., students are responsible for seeking guidance from a responsible program officer if they are in any doubt. Misunderstanding, or advice received from another student will not be accepted as cause for dispensation from any regulation, deadline, or program requirement.


University Policies

As members of the University of Toronto community, students assume certain responsibilities and are guaranteed certain rights and freedoms.

The University has several policies that are approved by the Governing Council and which apply to all students. Each student must become familiar with these policies. The University will assume that he or she has done so. Three University policies which are of particular importance to MD students are:

  • Standards of Professional Practice Behaviour for all Health Professional Students
  • Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters
  • Code of Student Conduct

All institution-wide University policies can be found on the Governing Council website.

The rules and regulations of the MD Program are referenced in this Academic Regulations section of this Calendar. In applying to the MD Program, the student assumes certain responsibilities to the University and the Faculty and, if admitted and registered, shall be subject to all rules, regulations and policies referenced in the Calendar, as amended from time to time.

More information about students’ rights and responsibilities can be found on the Office of the Vice-Provost, Students website.
