All medical students must be eligible for and obtain an educational license from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Newfoundland and Labrador (CPSNL).
The Faculty of Medicine does not require criminal record checks or other screening procedures as a condition of admission to its program.
Students, however, should be aware that such record checks or other screening procedures may be required by agencies used by the University for professional registration, clinical experiences or academic course assignments necessary for graduation. Such agencies may refuse to accept students on the basis of information contained in the record check or other screening procedure thus preventing the student from completing a practice experience or other requirement. As a result, such students may not be eligible for promotion or graduation. The student is responsible for having such procedures completed as required at his or her own expense. The screening procedures of any given agency may change from time to time and are beyond the control of the University.
