We want your input!

Help chart the CPSO’s direction for the future

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario is developing a new strategic plan and we need your help.

Our new strategic plan will set the CPSO’s direction for the future and lay out our core priorities and activities that will help us achieve our vision: Quality Professionals; Health System; Public Trust. As Ontario’s medical regulator, our mandate is to protect the public interest and, as we begin discussing what our responsibilities and activities should look like over the next few years, your input is vital to helping ensure we remain focussed on the issues that matter to patients and families.

We are asking you to take 10 minutes to complete a survey and share your thoughts on our role in supporting health care and Ontario’s patients. What should the CPSO do more of and less off to be more effective at medical regulation? What are we doing well, and what do we need to improve?

The deadline to complete the survey is December 7, 2018. All results will be confidential and anonymous. We hope you’ll take the time to share your feedback.

Public Appointments: Board member opportunity!

Consider applying for a public member position on the Council (board) of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. The College regulates the profession of medicine in the public interest. Board duties include setting the strategy, organizational priorities and monitoring the College’s performance.

The Board consists of 34 members and 15 or 44% are appointed by the Government of Ontario. Public members of the Board are required to serve as a member of either the Discipline or the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (which reviews complaints). The work is challenging yet rewarding!

Applicants should be comfortable using and receiving electronic software and communications, reviewing complex materials and possess strong communication and critical thinking skills. The time commitment is significant ranging from 100-120 days of College work per year.

My work as a CPSO board member is incredibly rewarding. I take my role to protect the public interest very seriously. It is an honour, in fact.” John Langs

Interested candidates can find additional information about the application process online.
