About College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia regulates the practice of medicine under the authority of provincial law. All physicians who practise medicine in the province must be registrants of the College. The College’s overriding interest is the protection and safety of patients, and the quality of care they receive from their physicians. Regulation of the medical profession is based on the foundation that the College must act first and foremost in the interest of the public. The primary function of the College is to ensure that physicians are qualified, competent and following clearly defined standards of practice. The College administers processes for responding to complaints from patients and for taking action if a physician is practising in a manner that is incompetent, unethical or illegal. The College also administers a number of quality assurance initiatives to ensure physicians remain competent to practise medicine throughout their professional lives. The College is governed by the Health Professions Act, and the Regulations and Bylaws made under the Act. A board comprised of 10 peer-elected physicians and five public representatives appointed by the Ministry of Health are responsible for the governance of the College.
