Auditor Training Workshop

February 25, 2022 |

CPSM is holding an Auditor Training Workshop on May 13, 2022, geared toward recruiting new auditors in the areas of practice listed below. Attendees will be accepted based on CPSM needs/gaps across all CPSM audit programs. Online registration information will be sent via email in March.

Members who practice in the following areas should consider attending:

  • Cardiology
  • Family Medicine - Anesthesia
  • Family Medicine – Sports Medicine
  • General Surgery
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Internal Medicine/General Internal Medicine
  • Neonatology/Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine
  • Neurology
  • Obstetrics/Gynecology
  • Plastic Surgery
  • Radiology

CPSM auditors conduct either chart or interactive audits of the practices of a peer. Two CPSM departments conduct audits; the Quality department (Provisional registration audits, Quality Improvement audits, age triggered audits, and audits of referred physicians), as well as Complaints/Investigations.  Auditors may be called upon to conduct two to four audits per year. Each audit takes approximately one half-day and time is remunerated.

If you are interested in joining our auditor pool, a half-day training workshop with a pre-learning component will be held virtually on the morning of May 13, 2022. The workshop will provide a better understanding of the expectations of auditors. There is no cost to attend the training workshop and each participant will earn CPD credits. The minimum requirement for new CPSM College auditors is to have been practising independently for three years.

Why become an auditor?  

  • You would be contributing to the profession and improving the quality of the practice of medicine in the province.
  • You would be providing your colleagues with a fair assessment by a peer and both of you will learn in the process.
  • It would be a change of pace from your regular routine.  
  • You can earn CPD credits for auditing a peer.
