Starting a placement

Placement prerequisites

The following prerequisites are required in order for a student to start a placement at North York General Hospital:

Mask fit testing

You must have completed mask fit testing within the past 24 months. The following information will be requested upon registration:

  • Date mask fitted
  • Location mask fitted
  • Size/Model


Your immunizations need to be up to date. This includes a TB test within the past 12 months. The hospital is not responsible for any expenses relating to immunization requirements. Students will not be allowed to start a placement without proper documentation. Seasonal influenza immunizations are highly recommended. Your rotation or placement may be affected if this is missing.

If you are a student in a graduate program and have not provided your institution with documentation regarding immunizations, you must bring this with you on or prior to your first day of placement.

You will be asked to confirm your immunization status as well as your TB test results during the registration process.
