Hearing Decisions, Media Release | Posted June 11, 2024

Edmonton, AB – A CPSA Hearing Tribunal has sanctioned Dr. Jung Hwa Lee, a family physician from Calgary, after a previous finding of unprofessional conduct.

In 2023, Dr. Lee was found guilty of improperly accessing a patient’s health record in 2020, without an authorized reason for doing so and in breach of the Health Information Act, the Health Professions Act and CPSA’s Code of Ethics and Professionalism.

The Tribunal accepted a joint submission on sanction from Dr. Lee and CPSA’s Complaints Director. It was ordered that Dr. Lee receive a written reprimand and at her own expense, complete the Privacy and Confidentiality course offered by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (which she has done). Costs were not ordered by the Hearing Tribunal.
