Submitting Personal Information

SUBMITTING CHANGE OF NAME

Section 62 of the Medical Act states:

“No member of the college shall carry on the practice of medicine except under the name registered with the college and without first obtaining written consent of the council.”

If a physician wishes to change the name under which they practise, they must submit a written request with a copy of a legal document (Marriage Certificate or Certificate of Legal Change of Name).

SUBMITTING CHANGES OF ADDRESS

All members must notify the College, in writing via email or letter including the effective date, of any change of address.  The College Bylaws require notification within 15 days of moving.  The College cannot be responsible for failure to communicate to registrants who have not notified the College of address changes or the results of such failure.
