            following terms, conditions and limitations are imposed on the certificate of
            registration held by Dr. Paul Maxwell Irwin:

            1.    Dr. Irwin's practice is restricted to providing small surgical procedures
                  requiring local anesthesia and surgical consultations. 

            2.    Within twenty (20) days of the date of the Order, Dr. Irwin shall
                  practise only under the guidance of a clinical supervisor acceptable to
                  the College who has signed an undertaking in the form attached as
                  Schedule"1" to the Order (the "Clinical Supervisor"). The Clinical
                  Supervisor's responsibilities will include the following: 

                  (a)   The Clinical Supervisor will review a minimum of fifteen (15) of
                        Dr. Irwin's patient charts every two (2) weeks, which shall be
                        drawn from both his surgical procedures and surgical consultation
                        areas of practice if he has engaged in both areas of practice
                        during the period under review; and 
                  (b)   The Clinical Supervisor will meet with Dr. Irwin a minimum of once
                        a month and will report to the College every month, or more
                        frequently if there is a risk of harm or other concerns. 
            3.    Dr. Irwin shall have all charting completed within 24 hours of seeing
                  each patient, including all consultation notes, chart notes,
                  investigation requisitions, referrals to or communication with other
                  health care providers, and all other relevant documentation relating to
                  the patient's care and treatment. 

            4.    Dr. Irwin shall ensure his Clinical Supervisor has access to all of his
                  patient charts at all times from all practice locations and in particular
                  when the Clinical Supervisor seeks access to charts for the purposes of
                  the supervision. 

            5.    Dr. Irwin shall ensure that the undertaking of the Clinical Supervisor
                  attached as Schedule "1" to the Order is delivered to the College within

                  delivered the Clinical Supervisor's undertaking to the College by that
                  date, Dr. Irwin shall cease practice until delivery of the undertaking,
                  and the fact that he has done so will constitute a term, condition or
                  limitation on his certificate of registration. 

            6.    Dr. Irwin shall fully cooperate with the clinical supervision of his
                  practice, and shall abide by any recommendations of his Clinical

                  the College with the addresses of any locations where he practises
                  medicine, and, if he commences practice at a new location, shall provide
                  the College with its address within ten (10) days.

                  to each other and to the College and by the College to the Clinical
                  Supervisor(s) of all information the Clinical Supervisor(s) or the

                  the College to monitor his compliance with the terms of the Order.

            10.   Dr. Irwin shall maintain an up-to-date daily log (the "Patient Log"

                  Dr. Irwin shall provide his Clinical Supervisor(s) with full access to
                  his OHIP billings, his appointment scheduling book/program, and Patient
                  Log.  He shall maintain the original Patient Log and shall send a copy to
                  the College at the end of every calendar month. 

            11.   If a Clinical Supervisor(s) who has given an undertaking in Schedule "1"
                  to the Order is unable or unwilling to continue to fulfil its terms, Dr.
                  Irwin shall, within fifteen (15) days of receiving notice of same, obtain
                  an executed undertaking in the same form from a similarly qualified
                  person who is acceptable to the College and ensure that it is delivered
                  to the College within that time.  

            12.   If Dr. Irwin is unable to obtain a Clinical Supervisor in accordance with
                  paragraph 11 of the Order, he shall cease practising medicine immediately
                  until such time as he has done so, and the fact that he has done so will
                  constitute a term, condition or limitation on his certificate of
                  registration until that time.

            13.   Dr. Irwin is responsible for the costs of the Order.
