Dr. Pardis’ Status Pending the Hearing The ICRC made an interim order on April 12, 2016 under Section 37 of the Health Professions Procedural Code, pending resolution of the allegations against him. Dr. Pardis was required, among other things, to practise under the guidance of a clinical supervi- sor acceptable to the College in his family medicine practice. On April 15, 2016, Dr. Pardis’ counsel advised that, as Dr. Pardis did not expect to be able to find a clinical supervisor for his family practice, he would cease practising family medicine as of April 24, 2016. Dr. Pardis has not practised family medicine since that date. Dr. Pardis entered into an interim undertaking regarding his methadone practice pending resolution of the allegations against him. Among other things, Dr. Pardis agreed to practise under the guidance of a clinical supervisor acceptable to the College in re- spect of his methadone practice.
