Summary of Changes for the 2023-2024 Calendar
University of Calgary Calendar 2023-2024 Cumming School of Medicine 3. Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies 3.5 Registration (BCR)
3.5 Registration (BCR)
Continuity of Program

Students whose registration has been inactive for 12 months must reapply for admission and will be required to meet current BCR program requirements if readmitted. See B.12 Residency Requirements, Letters of Permission and Leaves of Absence in the Academic Regulations section of this Calendar for more information.

The required courses for the degree must have been completed within ten years of the date of enrolment in the BCR program in order for the degree to be awarded.

Permission to Complete Courses at an Outside Institution

A letter of permission must be obtained from the Student Advisor, Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies prior to registering at another university. Please be aware that there are limits to the number of courses that can be taken at another university.

Repeating Courses

Students may repeat a course previously attempted (including withdrawals) only once without permission of the Faculty office. Practicum courses offered by Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies may not be repeated after a failing grade has been received without:

(a) The prior consent of the Director, Bachelor of Community Rehabilitation;
(b) Presenting evidence of having made an attempt to overcome previous difficulties encountered;
(c) Waiting a reasonable period of time (one semester to one calendar year) prior to repetition.

Excessive Number of Withdrawals

Students will not be permitted to withdraw more than once from a particular course. Students will be required to withdraw from the Cumming School of Medicine if they have accumulated a total of more than 30 units withdrawals while in attendance at the University of Calgary.

Immunization Requirements

All Alberta-based BCR students and students taking Community Rehabilitation (CORE) courses involving practicum placements in Alberta are required to meet an immunization standard as outlined on the Student Immunization Form checklist. Documented proof of completion must be provided to the Cumming School of Medicine Immunization Co-ordinator or delegate prior to commencement of the program (for BCR students) or first practicum placement (for non-BCR students).

Throughout the BCR program, students are required to ensure that immunizations are current and must provide proof of updates to the Cumming School of Medicine Immunization Co-ordinator. Failure to do so will result in students being removed from practicum courses, or being placed in an alternate environment until such time as adequate proof has been provided. In the event of extenuating medical circumstances impacting immunization status, students may be accommodated in non-Alberta Health Services-affiliated environments. Please note that requirements may change during the program as determined by Alberta Health Services guidelines.

Other community agencies may have additional immunization requirements. Where students choose not to disclose their immunization status or choose not to be immunized, their practicum placements may be cancelled. Students are responsible for identifying an alternate placement, subject to the approval of the course co-ordinator.

Police Information Check

Some practicum placements arranged for select CORE courses may require students to obtain a current Police Information Check, which may also include a Vulnerable Sector Search. Students are obligated to inform the Cumming School of Medicine (through the Associate Dean (Undergraduate Health and Science Education)) immediately of any change in status to their criminal record.
