Residents in the School-Clinical Track must also have the following:

Canadian Citizen and Permanent Resident applicants will be given preference; international students with valid Canadian Co-op Work Permits will be considered and may apply.

*** If you had placements and / or requirements that were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, please request that your Director of Clinical Training highlight the nature of this impact in their portion of the APPIC application. If you had placements that were cancelled or prematurely terminated, please describe the training and hours that were anticipated in your cover letter. In the event that your hours fall short of the minimal requirements due to COVID-19, this shortfall will be taken into consideration.
