Important Information for Graduating Students
To help you transition your care smoothly.
18 April 2018
It has been a great pleasure providing for your health care needs.
As you are aware, the University of Toronto Health & Wellness Centre provides services for current University of Toronto undergraduate and graduate students who have paid the appropriate incidental fees for the school year. Eligible students can access our services from September 1 to August 31 of the following year.
If you are 1) graduating this summer, 2) leaving the University or 3) you do not plan to register at the University in September 2018, please inform your current care provider as soon as possible so we can work with you to plan for a smooth transition of care. You will still be able to access our services until August 31, 2018.
We encourage you to consider the following:
- Find another clinician near you to continue your care. We can provide you with a list of resources, e.g. family physicians who are accepting new patients.
- Update your contact information in our system.
- Your new care provider can request your medical records on your behalf with your consent. Please refer to our website for detailed instructions on how to request medical record: http://www.studentlife.utoronto.ca/hwc/forms#node-1255 (Authorization of release of medical information)
- If you are an international student with a UHIP plan, your UHIP will also expire. You may want to contact the UHIP office to explore your health insurance options. You can find information on University of Toronto UHIP Office website: http://www.studentlife.utoronto.ca/cie/uhip.
Please feel free to discuss your needs with your care provider.
