Becoming an ERMEP Preceptor

ERMEP works with the Ontario Universities and is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. We place third and fourth year medical clerks in their Core, Elective, Specialty Core, or Specialty Elective placements.  We also set up and fund post-grad electives. ERMEP funds preceptor stipends [$250 per week] plus organize and fund the learner's accommodations and mileage. 

According to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care Guidelines all placements must be a minimum of four consecutive weeks to a maximum of eight consecutive weeks.  

If a learner contacts your office for a placement for a minimum of four consecutive weeks kindly direct the learner to the ERMEP Office.  ERMEP will guide the learner to apply on-line and ERMEP will contact you to see if you are available to teach for this timeframe.  This way everyone will be funded.

Any preceptors who are interested in teaching learners are encouraged to fill in the following forms and send to our office:
