Personal references are important evidence pertaining to an applicant’s character and conduct.  

Applicants must provide at least two references.

The referees should be individuals who have knowledge of the applicant’s deportment in a professional setting.

They can be principals, colleagues, university professors, residency supervisors, etc.

References should speak to the issues of the applicant’s character conduct, particularly in the professional setting, and address such issues as their competence, professionalism, communication skills with colleagues, staff and patients, willingness to take responsibility and learn, and overall suitability for registration in the profession.

References mus be written, include the name, contact information and signature of the referee, and should be sent directly to the College.
