COFM Immunization policy #

The Council of Ontario Faculties of Medicine (COFM) Immunization Policy applies to all medical learners (undergraduate medical students and postgraduate residents and fellows) attending an Ontario medical school and performing clinical activities in Ontario. Undergraduate medical learners who do not comply with the immunization policy may be excluded from clinical activities. Residents who do not comply with the immunization policy may be delayed in starting or continuing training. Ontario medical learners doing international clinical placements will require an additional assessment. A travel medicine consultation should take place at least eight weeks before their placement. Additional immunizations may be necessary depending on the location of their placement.
