Discontinue Your Medical Licence

Once you have decided that you no longer want to practise medicine in Nova Scotia, you must notify us with the following information:

  • your name
  • your licence number
  • the date on which you will no longer need your medical licence
  • the reason you no longer need the licence, such as retirement, leaving Nova Scotia, leave of absence, etc.
  • your updated contact information
  • the location of your patient records

Notify Us

We are here to help.
Call 902-422-5823 or toll-free 1-877-282-7767

Note: Your licence may only be surrendered after you complete and return the form and you receive consent from the Registrar.

Should someone file a complaint about you after you have discontinued your licence, you will still be subject to the College’s complaints procedure.
