College Responding to the Need for Improved Access to Care
Improving access to safe, competent care is critical to Nova Scotians. It is the only strategic theme on the College’s Strategic Plan.
The College has a central role in addressing access to care. As the regulator of the medical profession, the College establishes the requirements for entry to practice in our province. This work is led by the College’s Registration Policy Committee composed of practising family physicians and other specialists. The committee is supported by the College’s governing Council of practising physicians and public members, all of whom are focused on improving access to safe care.
The Access to Care: 2023 In Review report highlights our efforts over the past year.
