The PPE Panel is recruiting a new member

The Physician Practice Enhancement Program (PPEP) is seeking a family physician to join the Physician Practice Enhancement Panel (PPE Panel).

The role of the College and its authority and powers are set out in the Health Professions Act, RSBC 1996, c.183, the Regulations and the Bylaws made under the Act. Under the legislation, the College has committees made up of board members, medical professionals and public representatives who review issues and provide guidance and direction to the Board and the College staff, ensuring a well-balanced and equitable approach to regulation. 

Committees of the Board are comprised of members who reflect the importance of diversity, gender equality, varied professional experience, and qualification. 

The PPE Panel is a panel of the Quality Assurance Committee. Under the direction of the panel chair and deputy registrar, the panel member will provide expert opinion and adjudicate program files, promote quality improvement in community-based physicians’ practices, identify opportunities to guide professional development, and provide opinion and guidance on program development. 

The panel member is expected to contribute to the collective attributes of the panel, as established by the Board of the College, by ensuring:

  • Accountability, honesty and integrity: Ability and willingness to take full responsibility for decisions and to follow through on commitments. 
  • Adaptability: Appreciation that, at times, plans need to change to meet changing circumstances and needs.
  • Collaboration: Recognition that, in a complex system, what can emerge as a result of meaningful engagement and dialogue will be stronger than what is created in isolation.
  • Respect: Ability to work with others effectively, appreciate differing perspectives and opinions, foster and promote, not impede and stifle, robust dialogue.
  • Knowledge of and ability to apply and interpret quality improvement tools and principles: As our program continually strives to improve having knowledge of quality improvement is helpful.
  • Understanding principles of adult education: The focus of PPEP is on improvement and remediation that involves adult education principles.
