Student electives suspended during COVID-19

Job shadow


In response to the ongoing global novel coronavirus pandemic, registration and licensure of visiting medical students and visiting podiatric students has been suspended by the College. This includes visiting independent medical students, visiting UBC medical students, and podiatric surgeon student electives. Without a licence issued by the College, medical students and podiatric surgeon students are prohibited from having clinical contact of any kind, this includes observing registrants and accessing patient records.

Currently these programs have been suspended through July 2021. Updates will be posted on the College website as further information becomes available. Visiting UBC medical students can access the AFMC Student Portal for information specific to this program.
