College Council

Council sets direction and policy for the College, while daily operations are managed by the College Registrar and leadership team.

College Council includes physician members elected by their medical colleagues and public members appointed by Alberta’s Lieutenant-Governor in Council. Alberta’s medical school deans also hold a Council seat, and medical learners are represented as observers. Council meets four times per year. Members of the profession and public are invited to attend the open agenda.
