Committees, Governance, Physicians | Posted September 19, 2022

Are you a rural family medicine/general practice physician with a clinical practice outside Edmonton or Calgary?

If so, consider an active role in profession-led governance by joining a CPSA committee. Our Competence Committee is currently seeking two new members.

Under the Health Professions Act (HPA), the Competence Committee makes recommendations to CPSA’s Council about our quality improvement and assurance programs, which include general assessments, continuous professional development and competence assessments. As a committee member, you will provide direction and guidance on the development, implementation and evaluation of these programs.


  • You hold a valid, active permit to practise medicine in Alberta and are in good standing with CPSA.
  • You have a minimum of five years practice experience.
  • We also consider involvement in teaching, education, remediation and continuous quality improvement assets.

Time commitment:

  • Competence Committee meets up to four times per year, for three-to-six hours. Meetings are held virtually and/or in person.
  • Members need to review and be familiar with meeting material prior to meetings.


  • CPSA pays committee members an honorarium and reimburses relevant expenses based on CPSA rates.
