                        Physicians of Canada, or an organization that has been approved by
                        the College for that purpose that meets the requirements for
                        continuing professional development set by the Royal College of
                        Physicians and Surgeons of Canada or the College of Family

                  practise and before the date the College agrees that I may return to
                  practise in accordance with the provisions of this Undertaking.
