Anyone with a suspected concussion should seek medical services. As a U of T Scarborough student, you can visit the Health & Wellness Centre, at SL270, to be assessed by a doctor. You can also visit your family doctor, local walk-in clinics, urgent care centres or Emergency Department at the nearest hospital.
Forms you need to bring with you:
- Verification Of Illness or Injury Form – To be completed by your doctor if your concussion related symptoms will impact you for a short period of time (less than a week) and/or you require support for a petition, missed test/exam etc.
- AccessAbility Services Medical Certificate – To be completed by your doctor if your concussion related symptoms will impact you for an extended period of time (more than a week) and you require academics accommodations and supports from AccessAbility Services.
Please be advised that some doctors off-campus charge for forms. Based on your discussion with your doctor and the severity of your concussion, you can decide which form(s) you require to be completed.
If you have any questions or concerns about which form(s) you require, please contact contact AccessAbility Services at 416-287-7560 or Health & Wellness Centre at 416-287-7065 for assistance.
Do not move the person or remove any equipment, such as a helmet or seat belt, in case of a spine injury.
