Under the Health Professions Act, we have the responsibility and privilege of regulating the medical profession in the service of Albertans.
While healthcare delivery and practices continue to change, the College’s commitment to a high quality public healthcare system and safe, competent care for Albertans remains as strong as ever.
As Council president, I believe the public trust placed in our College must be earned continuously, and present our 2015 Annual Report, approved by Council, as testament
of our commitment to Albertans.
Dr. James Stone
CPSA Council President
We bring expertise in business, law, governance, education and human resources to our work on Council and Council committees.
The contributions of public members are essential to effective self-regulation, and our physician colleagues recognize and appreciate the value of our input.
Mutual respect and thoughtful discussion underscore every Council decision.
It is a pleasure and a privilege to participate in this important work on behalf of Albertans.
Message on behalf of public Council members:

A more collaborative model of care has emerged, focused on providing Albertans with the right care, in the right place, by the right provider. Patients too are becoming increasingly active participants in
their own care.
As an organization whose mission is “serving the public by guiding the medical profession”, the College is uniquely positioned to promote this evolution in care for the benefit of Albertans.
What does this mean in practical terms? Some examples from
our recent work:
I believe this is how good regulation is made; not in isolation but as a product of many perspectives, carefully weighed to best serve the public interest. As a physician, I also believe this is a recipe for providing good care – listen, learn, collaborate and contribute – that not only best serves our patients, but also strengthens and supports all those in the circle of care.
Dr. Trevor Theman
