ID Cards

It is essential for all McGill registered residents and fellows to obtain both a McGill ID card as well as a hospital ID card.

McGill student ID card:

Once you have registered via Minerva, you can get your student card, as of June 1, at the McGill Service Point. Please contact them for opening hours and appointment. 

Please note that you must wait 24 hours following registration to get your student ID card. All residents and fellows must bring two (2) pieces of official government identification with them.

Proof of citizenship for Canadians, proof of landing for permanent residents of Canada, or a valid CAQ, Job Validation letter and work permit, together with the Permanent Code Data Form, are required in order to finalize registration and obtain a McGill I.D. card.  Please submit these required documents to the office of the Associate Dean for Postgraduate Medical Education for processing prior to the start of the academic year.

Your student ID card gives you access to essential services on campus including library, labs, athletics, some residences and cafeterias.

Hospital ID card:

Hospital ID cards are issued by your base hospital (MUHC, Jewish General Hospital, St. Mary's, CSSS de Gatineau, CSSS Jardins-Roussillon or Hôpital de Val-d'Or).

It is mandatory for all residents and fellows to wear their hospital identity card for identification while training in the hospital.
