Rotation Setup Information for International Medical Learners
The Rural Ontario Medical Program (ROMP) can assist with rotations for international learners. An international medical learner who wishes to set up a clinical rotation in Ontario must do the following prior to submitting an application to ROMP
- Find and confirm a preceptor.
- Register the rotation with ROMP.
The ROMP office cannot help International Medical Students find a preceptor. Searching the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario www.cpso.on.ca can be helpful to find a physician in a specific community. It is the responsibility of the International Medical student to contact and confirm their own preceptor.
