Registrar's message

Maintaining public confidence in professional regulation: it starts with you

Registrants are reminded of their legal and ethical duty to cooperate fully and respond to all communication from the College in a timely manner. This includes registrants’ obligations to respond promptly to concerns regarding their professional conduct or medical practice.

Notification of 2015 Education Day and Annual General Meeting

Don’t miss out on this year’s Education Day on September 25, 2015 where colleagues will gather to contemplate communication conundrums—a topic which all physicians will be familiar with as they progress through their medical careers. Join authors and experts who will explore the more difficult conversations physicians are confronted with such as end-of-life care, patient misinformation about treatment options promoted by celebrities, patient demands for opioids or sedatives, and encouraging colleagues to seek help.

New or updated professional standards and guidelines

The College develops Professional Standards and Guidelines to assist physicians in meeting high standards of medical practice and conduct. The topics addressed focus on specific issues that are relevant to the practice of medicine. Physicians are encouraged to become familiar with the College's Professional Standards and Guidelines. The Professional Standards and Guidelines are reviewed regularly and may be updated over time.


The College Connector is sent to every current registrant of the College. Decisions of the College on matters of standards and guidelines are contained in this publication. The College therefore assumes that each registrant is aware of these matters. Questions or comments about this publication should be directed to communications@cpsbc.ca.
