Accessing health care
As a resident of Ontario, you are entitled to receive health care anywhere in the province. If you think that you may have to miss school because of your injury or illness, use the Absence Regulations (PDF) to find out what you need to do and who to contact. The sooner you contact the MD Program, the better, especially if you are likely to miss an exam or other assessment.
