What We Do

We review physician education, post-graduate training and, when necessary, arrange assessments to determine whether applicants are ready to practise. Physician qualifications and practice details are reviewed annually.
(e.g. diagnostic imaging, laboratories, non-hospital surgical services) We inspect facilities, using stringent clinical and safety standards, and approve the physicians who work in these facilities.
Operating outside the disciplinary process of the College, we regularly assess our members against expected competencies and standards, and educate and support them to implement any necessary practice improvements.
We favor an educational or training approach, but apply discipline if necessary.
The College welcomes the opportunity to share its views with government and other healthcare partners and participate in building a strong health care system for Albertans.
The Code of Ethics, Standards of Practice and Code of Conduct outline the College’s expectations of Alberta physicians.
