Starting a placement
The following prerequisites are required in order for a student to start a placement at North York General Hospital:
NYGH’s COVID-19 Immunization Policy requires every learner, physician, staff and volunteer to be fully vaccinated (2 weeks post second dose) except for those who have an approved medical or Ontario Human Rights Code exemption. Proof of vaccination or exemption must be documented at the school.
Approved school exemptions must be submitted to NYGH for review & approval prior to commencing with a placement/rotation. If you have an approved school exemption, contact email@example.com or 416-756-6929 to inquire about our process for review and potential approval. Please note this process may take several days.
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
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.
You will be asked to confirm your immunization status as well as your TB test results during the registration process. You will also be asked to upload completed immunization records during your registration process.
- Institutional Workplace Insurance Agreement
The students from publicly funded Ontario colleges and universities are covered for workplace injuries through a program from the Ministry of Colleges and Universities. If you are from one of these academic institutions, you do not need to do anything else.
- Private workplace insurance
- This applies to the following:
• Out of province students
• Students from private institutions
• Students in a practicum placement following completion of their academic studies
Bring certificate of coverage on Day 1
• Students paid by NYGH
Vulnerable sector screen
Vulnerable sector screen must be completed within the past 12 months for all students and must be submitted to your academic institution. If you have not provided the completed screen to your academic institution, you must upload it during the registration process on Nirv.
If your screen has positive findings, please notify us before your placement, as conditions of your placement will need to be reviewed.
All mandatory training modules must be completed prior to the first day of your rotation. You will be asked to complete these during your registration process on Nirv.
