CPSA launches emergency register
As per clause 9(2) of the Physicians, Surgeons and Osteopaths Profession Regulation, CPSA Registrar, Dr. Scott McLeod, activated an Emergency Register on March 19, 2020.
The CPSA Emergency Register will allow physicians currently registered in another province or territory to temporarily work in Alberta during emergency circumstances, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. This registration is free and there is no formal registration process. Here is our criteria to apply:
Interested physicians must:
- be on the general register (and unrestricted) in another Canadian jurisdiction.
- send us a Certificate of Professional Conduct (CPC) from the jurisdiction(s) they are currently registered in (verbal confirmation from their College will be acceptable).
- confirm that they have CMPA membership.
- submit a piece of government issued photo ID.
- agree to the terms outlined in the CPSA Registration Understanding and Acknowledgement for the Emergency Register, which CPSA will send you once you email us.
The CPSA Emergency Register expires after 60 days. Physicians may renew beyond this point.
Lastly, the CMPA will extend assistance
to physicians are providing care outside of their usual field of practice or in a different province.
