When is orientation and what to expect?
There will be an online orientation session run in July by the program coordinator to get the ball rolling on some important dates including orientation days, deadlines for tuition fees, and links on electives and exemptions. This will also cover textbooks and cost, the breakdown of Sunnybrook and it’s amenaties, how to access the google platform, resources for student success as well as how to get your ID badges and parking information.
There will be a second orientation session at Sunnybrook hospital the last week of August to help you get better acquainted with the the building and to answer any more questions you may have to help you get prepared for the start of school.
The last orientation day before the start of term occurs on the Wednesday of the first week of September where the coordinator will hand out textbooks, go over course outlines, share the lab groups and schedule, introduce you to the faculty and peer leaders for first year.
All of this information can be found throughout the site, if you would like to get a jumpstart!
