2) New additions to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) – See FAQs

Starting July 1, 2012, medical students in the final two years of their program may receive up to $1,500 (taxes included) in travel and accommodation expense reimbursement for one rotation per academic year in an Academic Health Science Centre in Ontario that is 100 kilometers or further from the clerk’s home medical school. This program applies retroactively to travel and accommodation expenses that were incurred since April 1, 2011.

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 by allowing clinical clerks to explore career choices outside of their local area;
  • Continue to promote Ontario as a preferred location for postgraduate education.

The Clerkship Travel Program (CTP) was negotiated in the Physician Services Agreement, is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) and administered by HealthForceOntario Marketing and Recruitment Agency (HFO MRA).
