A reminder about postgraduate trainee prescribing
Physicians in a postgraduate/residency program may prescribe drugs, including Type 1 TPP-monitored medications. Medical residents must obtain approval from their program director to register with TPP Alberta—the new online resident registration form and more information on how to register can be found at tppalberta.ca/register.
Once registered, medical residents will receive personalized TPP Alberta prescription forms to use when prescribing Type 1 TPP drugs.
As recommended for all prescribers, medical residents should clearly identify themselves on any prescription. The resident’s signature should be followed by their printed name and CPSA registration number. For postgraduate trainees, the residency program name and contact information must also be included. These details help with prescriber identification and ensure prescriptions are processed and dispensed promptly. Supervising physicians do not need to co-sign a prescription written by a postgraduate trainee.
