Issue 2: May 2023

Council & Annual General Meeting

The College’s Council is the governing board of the College. The Council includes physician members elected by physicians and public members appointed by the College through a nominations process.

The Council met on May 26th and approved the following revised standards:

The following standards were retired:

  • Professional Standard Regarding Obstetrical Ultrasound for Non-Medical Reasons
  • Professional Standard Regarding Professional Responsibilities in Postgraduate Medical Education
  • Professional Guidelines Regarding Resumption of Services in Medical Practices during COVID-19
  • Guidelines for Retiring Physicians Regarding Licensing and Notification
  • Guidelines for Vaccine Storage and Handling

These standards are no longer needed as guidance is provided for in other standards or they pertain to issues that are no longer relevant, or they address clinical issues that are effectively addressed by other healthcare stakeholders.

The Council also endorsed the Framework on Wise Practices and Medical Regulation: Towards an equitable and safe experience for Indigenous people.  The document was developed by the Federation of Medical Regulatory Authorities of Canada.
