Registration Process

Once the PGME Office receives the required documents from the University of Toronto postgraduate program, a Letter of Appointment (LOA) will be issued to the resident. This letter must be signed by the resident and returned to the PGME Office. A copy will be forwarded to the CPSO. 

Along with the LOA, the resident will receive a PIN/password letter. Using the PIN/Password, the resident will be able to register on-line at the PGME website, and print off his/her Confirmation of Registration form – provided all the information noted above (1-5) has been received. The Confirmation of Registration form will allow the trainee to register at the appropriate hospital Credentials/Medical Education Office in Toronto and access library services.
