Information for medical students

In cases where a student has an academic relationship with a physician at McGill Student Health Services or at any other clinic, the student has the right to request that McGill Health Services or any other clinic refer that student to another physician.

In cases where a student may come to have an academic relationship with a physician who has previously provided the student medical care at McGill Student Health Services or at any other clinic, the student has the right and the student and the physician share the responsibility to ensure that the physician recuses him/herself from subsequent evaluations of the student. The student is encouraged to request a change in supervisor or teaching site, as necessary, from the appropriate component administrator: FMD Year 1, FMD Year 2, TCP, Clerkship, and Physicianship.
