CPSA is making changes to its Physician Health Monitoring Program (PHMP) starting September 2023. What’s changing?

Posted September 15, 2023

Historically, CPSA has operated PHMP primarily in-house. Over the coming months, CPSA will transition health assessments, fitness-to-practise assessments and biological monitoring functions to external service providers.

Diagnosis, treatment and whether a regulated member’s health condition adversely impacts their ability to practise will be objectively determined by independent, experienced and trusted service providers. The service providers will provide CPSA with reports on fitness to practise and recommendations for practice accommodations and conditions, as required.

CPSA is working with our partners in health care to ensure a smooth transition of physician health assessment and monitoring functions. More details will be available in the coming months.

Physicians currently engaged with PHMP have been contacted directly about this change, and we will provide them with more information and details of how this will impact them. No action is required at this time, but you may email if you have any questions.
