Faculty of Medicine Learners

There are several international opportunities available to you depending on the type of placement you are seeking and where you want to travel. Please give yourself ample time to plan your international experience.  

Once the placement has been approved, it is possible to revoke this decision and the placement can be cancelled due to a change in conditions in the country, loss of in-country supervisor, OR arising academic or professional concerns on the part of the learner. 

ALL learners at the University of Ottawa planning international travel related to their program must complete mandatory International Mobility Risk Management online modules 2 weeks prior to departure (link to PDT section).  

Warning: Countries with an advisory of ‘Avoid all travel’ or ‘Avoid non-essential travel’ will not be approved.
