Clerkship Travel Program

NOTICE: Canada Post Service Disruption

Canada Post has announced a rotating strike. You may experience some delays in affected areas. We will continue to post up-to-date information about any changes to our services that result from the strike.

Ontario medical students in the final two years of their program (including those who participated in an extended/advanced clerkship program after September 1, 2017) may receive up to $1,500 (taxes included) in travel and accommodation expense reimbursement for one rotation per academic year at an Academic Health Science Centre in Ontario that is 100 kilometres or further from the clerk’s home medical school.

The goal of the Clerkship Travel Program is to:

  • Improve distribution of physicians across Ontario by allowing exposure to a variety of practice settings;
  • Enhance the mix of specialties in communities by allowing clinical clerks to explore career choices outside of their local area;
  • Continue to promote Ontario as a preferred location for post-graduate education.
