Council

CPSA's Council sets our overall direction and policies.

Who sits on CPSA Council?

A combination of physicians, Albertans and learners all bring their unique experiences and perspectives to CPSA Council:

  • Physician members, elected by their medical colleagues
  • Public members, appointed by Alberta’s Lieutenant-Governor in Council
  • Medical school Deans from the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary
  • Medical students and residents (non-voting observers)

Council meetings

CPSA Council generally meets for two full days, four times a year, to discuss key issues and make important decisions that impact medical practice in Alberta.

The agenda is posted prior to the meeting dates, with a synopsis of what was reviewed and approved posted after each meeting. If you would like additional information about the agenda topics prior to an upcoming Council meeting, please complete the meeting attendance form.
