            Clinical Supervision

            2.    Dr. Houshmand shall practice under the guidance of a Clinical
                  Supervisor(s) acceptable to the College, at his own expense.

            3.    Dr. Houshmand may practice only under the high-level supervision of the
                  Clinical Supervisor(s).  This will require that the Clinical
                  Supervisor(s) be on site and available at all times that Dr. Houshmand is
                  providing care or treatment to patients. The Clinical Supervisor's

                        Clinical Supervisor will:
                  
                        i)    Review and approve of the pre-operative assessment and the
                              treatment plan prior to the anesthesia or sedation being
                              provided.  The anesthesia or sedation is not to be provided
                              by Dr. Houshmand until approval of the Clinical Supervisor
                              has been obtained;
                  
                        ii)   In the case of sedation, observe Dr. Houshmand during the
                              administration of sedation and be immediately available
                              during the subsequent monitoring of the patient throughout
                              the procedure until the patient has fully returned to
                              consciousness;
                  
                        iii)  In the case of general anesthesia, observe Dr. Houshmand
                              during the administration of sedation and the insertion of an
                              airway beyond the oropharynx ("intubation");
                  
                        iv)   After the administration of sedation and subsequent
                              intubation, and until the patient has been extubated and has
                              fully returned to consciousness, be immediately available to
                              provide assistance if required; 
                  
                        v)    In the case of major regional anesthesia, such as spinals and
                              epidurals, observe Dr. Houshmand during the performance of
                              the procedure and be immediately available during the
                              subsequent monitoring of the patient throughout the
                              procedure;
                  
                        vi)   Review and approve all of Dr. Houshmand's perioperative
                              documentation prior to the patient leaving the recovery room;
                              and 
                  
                        vii)  Report to the College once every two weeks for the first
                              month, following which if the supervisor recommends and the
                              College approves, the reporting can be reduced to once a
                              month.  
                  
            4.    Dr. Houshmand shall cease to practise medicine until the undertaking of
                  the Clinical Supervisor(s) attached at Appendix "B" to this Order is
                  delivered to the College, and the fact that he has ceased to practise
                  medicine will constitute a term, condition or limitation on his
                  certificate of registration.  

            5.    If a Clinical Supervisor(s) who has given an undertaking in Appendix "B"
                  to this Order is unable or unwilling to continue to fulfil its terms, Dr.
                  Houshmand shall obtain an executed undertaking in the same form from a
                  similarly qualified person who is acceptable to the College and ensure
                  that it is delivered to the College.  

            6.    If Dr. Houshmand is unable to obtain a Clinical Supervisor(s) in
                  accordance with paragraph (2) of this Order, he shall cease practising
                  medicine immediately until such time as he has done so, and the fact that
                  he has done so will constitute a term, condition or limitation on his
                  certificate of registration until that time. For further clarity, Dr.
                  Houshmand shall not practise medicine at any time except under the
                  high-level supervision of a Clinical Supervisor acceptable to the College

            Notification of Practice Locations

            7.    Dr. Houshmand shall, within five (5) days of the date of this Order,
                  provide the College with the addresses of any locations where he
                  practises medicine ("Practice Location(s)"), and, if he commences
                  practice at a new location, shall provide the College with its address
                  within five (5) days.
