We are currently recruiting physicians to join our pool of assessors for the Preliminary Clinical Assessment (PCA), which is the first part of CPSA’s two-part Practice Readiness Assessment (PRA).

Are you:

  • a family physician on CPSA’s General Register?
  • practising in a rural, regional or urban location?
  • working in clinic, acute care in-patient, emergency department, long-term care and/or low-risk obstetrics?
  • interested in helping qualified internationally-trained physicians enter practice in Alberta?

If so, we’d love to hear from you! Please review our PCA Assessor Qualifications and then complete the online PRA PCA Assessor Application & Practice Profile form.

Not sure if you meet the qualifications? Please submit your application and a CPSA team member will reach out to let you know if you qualify or if we require additional information.

Why be an assessor?

Give back to your profession by participating in a program that will deliver medical care to Albertans.

Attendance at an online assessor training workshop is required and you will receive compensation and MAINPRO+ credits.
