Proctorship in non-hospital facilities

In addition to ensuring appropriate requirements for proctorship, both the physician proctor and the physician trainee must be granted privileges at the non-hospital facility where the medical/surgical procedure training is occurring prior to the training taking place. This is to ensure that a physician proctor, qualified in the medical/surgical procedure, is present to provide oversight of the patient during the training.

The College has provisions in place for temporary (educational) privileges to allow registrants an opportunity to maintain or enhance their clinical skills.

Note: This does not apply to medical students or residents who may receive training at the non-hospital facility where the physician preceptor of the medical student or resident has been granted privileges at the non-hospital facility.
