In the event a complaint is received by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia (the College) against a physician registered in postgraduate training with Dalhousie University Faculty of Medicine, the College will notify the postgraduate trainee’s Program Director of the complaint. Only the general nature of the complaint will be shared at that time. The physician subject to the complaint will be copied on the notification.

The resolution of the complaint will also be shared with the physician and their Program Director.

In reporting to the Program Director, the College will disclose the full decision.

This policy will be brought to the attention of physicians when they apply for registration with the College.
