Designate three referees to submit a reference letter directly to Boucher Admissions. Ideally, you should designate references from one academic source, one from a regulated healthcare professional and one from either of the above categories or a past employer/volunteer supervisor. However, if you are unable to provide a suitable reference from any of the above categories, you may substitute that category with an additional reference from one of the other categories.
You must have known the referee for a minimum of one year (two years or more is strongly recommended).

- Interpersonal Relations
- Knowledge of Profession
- Oral Communication
- Organizational Skills
- Reaction to Criticism
- Stress Management
- Team Skills

- Written Communication.
Candidate Evaluations Forms must be sent to Boucher Admissions directly from the referee, either by mail, fax or email.
