Policy respecting a professional's name and name change requests

SHARE

The purpose of this policy is to create a standard for the choice of surname or given names that a candidate or professional may use. This policy is also intended to create guidelines for requests to change a surname or given name. The Collège des médecins must ensure that there is no confusion regarding the identity of the person practicing medicine.

This policy covers all requests for issuing a registration, training card, permit or specialist’s certificate and all requests for equivalence, for entry on the roll of the order and for name change.
