                  (c)   I, Dr. Contreras, acknowledge that the charts reviewed shall be
                        selected by the Clinical Supervisor based on the educational needs
                        identified in the IEP set out at Appendix "B" to my Undertaking, as
                        well as the areas of concern identified in the materials provided

                        limited to recommended practice improvements and ongoing
                        professional development. 
                  
                  
                  (e)   I, Dr. Contreras, acknowledge that in making its determination that
                        I may return to unsupervised practice, the College may require that

                        (30) days of the Effective Date. 
                  
                  (g)   I, Dr. Contreras, undertake that if a person who has given an
                        undertaking in Appendix "A" to this Undertaking is unable or
                        unwilling to continue to fulfill its provisions, I shall, within
                        twenty (20) days of receiving notice of same, obtain an executed
                        undertaking in the same form from a similarly qualified person who

                        College within that time.
                  
                  (h)   I, Dr. Contreras, undertake that if I am unable to obtain a
                        Clinical Supervisor as set out in sections (5)(f) and (5)(g) above,

                  (c)   I, Dr. Contreras, acknowledge and provide consent that my Clinical
                        Supervisor may receive and review the findings of the Assessor, and

                        the Reassessment.

                        will be provided to me and reported to the College and the
                        Reassessment may form the basis of further action by the College. 
                  
            (8)   Monitoring

                  (a)   I, Dr. Contreras, undertake to inform the College of each and every

                        Practice Locations within five (5) days of commencing practice at
                        that location.
                  
                  (b)   I, Dr. Contreras, undertake that I will submit to, and not
                        interfere with, unannounced inspections of my Practice Locations
