COVID-19 Information for Members regarding Registration
CPSM is responsible for registering physicians, surgeons, clinical assistants and physician assistants to practise in Manitoba.
CPSM is actively reviewing how best we can support the profession on a continuous basis as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. This includes consideration of what is available in terms of emergency measures within our statutory framework. Apart from these legislated measures, CPSM cannot register individuals who do not otherwise meet statutory qualifications for registration. Please refer to the registration requirements below.
Physicians, surgeons, clinical assistants and physician assistants:
(a) whose licensure or certificate of practice in Manitoba has expired and who have been out of practice for less than 3 years, or are currently practising in another jurisdiction, and are considering re-applying to practise in Manitoba, or
(b) who have never been registered in Manitoba and who meet the requirements for registration in Manitoba, and are considering applying to practise in Manitoba –
We request that, due to the recently declared state of emergency in Manitoba, you consider first contacting Shared Health respecting the medical services required in the province. Shared Health will be coordinating where resources are required and the areas that are most in need. Please contact Shared Health at: Shared Health.
Are You An International Medical Graduate?
Although the Application Guides (Family Practice and Specialty Practice) for International Medical Graduates are currently under revision, the requirements for Provisional Registration are noted below.
If you are deemed eligible for Provisional Registration (Family Practice Limited) or (Specialty Practice Limited) AND require the Assessment for Family Practice or Assessment for Specialty Practice, your name will be referred to the University of Manitoba International Medical Graduate Program’s Practice Ready Assessment – Family Practice (PRA MB-FP) or Specialty Practice (PRA MB-SP).
Please note that opportunities for physicians with the requirement for a Practice Ready Assessment - Specialty Practice (PRA-SP) are extremely limited. Due to the very high demand for these limited assessment positions, the process can be very lengthy.
Employment opportunities can located at Manitoba HealthCare Providers Network.
