1. Qualitative Information

a) Requirements for registration, including acceptable alternatives
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

The Ontario Regulation states that the accredited medical school must be listed in the World Health Organization Directory(WHO) at the time of graduation. The directory is no longer being published as of 2008. This past year, the Registration Committee approved a policy to exempt the requirement and accept an alternative by way of FAIMER and IMED. 

The following policies were introduced as a "Memo Format"  at the Registration Committee meetings candidates who fulfilled the requirements as set out in the policy: The World Health Organization Exemption, One Year Canadian Citizen Exemption, and extensions for assessments. The implementation and approval of these policies reduces the nature of the material needed for committee review. This allowed applicants  to go to panel meetings more efficiently, and greatly reduced requirements to be collected by the applicant.

b) Assessment of qualifications
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC)

In our last report, we informed you that the RCPSC has agreed to develop a Practice Eligibility Route (PER) to certification for physicians currently practising in Canada.  Physicians can apply to the Royal College to have their training and subsequent practices reviewed and, if accepted, the physician may choose to challenge the regular certification examinations (route A), or the physician may choose to undergo the practice assessment (route B). 

The Royal College has advised us, and we agree that developing processes for all specialties is not an easy task and that it will take some time.  The Royal College has indicated that practice based examinations/assessments will be rolled out gradually, offering it first to a few primary specialties, then progressively to others. The order of the roll-out will be influenced to some degree by the expressions of interest or need.  PER for route B assessments in Psychiatry will be launched in 2015.

In addition, the Royal College has introduced a new examination program and affiliate category for non-certified specialists.  The subspecialty examination program and affiliate status (SEAP). This program provides a mechanism for non-certified, internationally-trained subspecialists practicing in Canada to challenge a Royal College subspecialty exam.The candidates will complete the RCPSC examination that all other candidates complete; however, they will not be awarded RCPSC certification.  Upon successful completion of the sub-specialty examination, SEAP candidates will be offered an opportunity to apply for “Affiliate Status” of the RCPSC.

ii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on applicants.

8 applicants gained access to the Psychiatry route B,

iii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on your organization.

No changes this year

c) Provision of timely decisions, responses, and reasons
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

Written Orders with Reasons were expedited from 6 months to 90 days to be consistent with the Investigations, Complaints and Resolutions Committee. 

ii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on applicants.

Unfortunately legal counsel has responded by wanting Orders with reasons even sooner. Perception by the applicant is often that they can be released within the meeting that they are discussed. Orders with reasons are complex and set out the reasons behind a refusal of an application.  These orders form the basis of an appeal to the Health Professions and Appeals Review Board (HPARB) and are subject to legal challenge. 

iii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on your organization.

No change has been realized at the organizational level. 

d) Fees
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

Update to the landing page for international medical graduates.  These updates connect applicants and potential applicants to the various pre licensure steps and requirements and speaks to the fees that they will incur prior to arrival. 

Applicants seeking modification to their terms, conditions and limitations of their restricted certificate are now charged a fee for Registration Committee review and staff credentialing. The fee is half of the application fee. 

ii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on applicants.

Applicants are now better planning their practice plans at the outset of the application process. 

iii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on your organization.

In this past, we have seen over 90% of applicants were changing their terms 30-60 days after the Registration Committee initially reviewed and approved their certificate. This has been decreased by 70% in the last 6 months, saving both Committee time and substantive College resources. 

e) Timelines
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

Credentialing of an application and communication of missing requirements to the physician is referred to as initial review of an application. This process was taking up to 7 weeks for certificates authorizing the practice of medicine in Ontario up until 2012. From 2012 - 2015, the process was improved to increase service standards. Initial review was decreased to 4 weeks in credentials and from 16 to 5 weeks for pathways requiring Registration Committee review. In 2015 continued improvements realized further decreases to processing time. Credentialing is now a 3 week process and committee review is now 4. 

In addition, the Identification of Post Graduate Trainees who may need Registration Committee review was expedited. The process is now triggered at the time of the CaRMS match whereby staff sends personalized packages vs. waiting for the applicant to self-report. The Committee is pleased to report that 98% of cases were adjudicated within the established benchmarks. 

ii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on applicants.

Applicants are able to respond sooner and reach committee decision faster. 

iii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on your organization.

Agendas for Registration Committee meetings are filling up quicker which increases size of material during the first 2/3 of the year. The final 2-3 months of the year are then much lighter agendas. This is putting a burden of workflow on the Committee who are on average seeing 125-150 cases per month. 

f) Policies, procedures and/or processes, including by-laws
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

Captured Within Other Sections:

Policies: Canadian Citizenship Exemption, and the WHO

Processes: Decreased initial review time and expedited committee review, live call answer was increased to 85%; memo style exemption policies enabled early panel review at committee

Pathway Project is still in process which will inform future regulation change and by - laws. 

ii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on applicants.

Fewer requirements collected for initial review, and expedited timeliness for review at a Registration Committee meeting. 

iii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on your organization.

No changes this year

g) Resources for applicants
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

New material was developed to support applicants who are applying under the Council Policy for Restricted Certificates for Exam Eligible candidates.  In a nutshell, qualified physicians who obtain registration under this policy are provided a certificate of registration to practice medicine under supervision for a maximum period of three years, or three attempts at the outstanding examination (Medical Council exams, Royal College Certification or Certification by the College of Family Physicians). A working group was tasked with developing material guides to aid these individuals with study plan templates and is now available to assist candidates as a part of their registration process. 

A LEAN process was used to analyze the forms required from an applicant, from time of pre-application to compliance, supervision and then assessment. This has seen a significant reduction in the amount of forms, and the number of duplication of efforts. Transparency and clarity on the registration process were improved by utilizing new classifcation/language on the requirement checklist and undertakings for supervision and assessment. Supervision forms were streamlined to include future practice activity and future assessment detail. 

FAQ's were updated on the system for International Medical Graduates  (IMG) landing pages on fees for IMG's pre licensure steps, Supervision Guidelines and Registration Committee review. 

FAQ's were developed for Summer Registration Volume that targeted final year medical students and residents and clinical fellows.

A survey was sent out to all existing supervisors and physicians under supervision (supervisees). Approval for a new College position was made by Council. The Supervisor Co-ordinator will be charged with developing training material, making infrastructure recommendations and providing recruiting and orientation to supervisors. The position is being filled in 2016.

Describe any registration-related improvements/changes to your enabling legislation and/or regulations in the last year

A program evaluation of the alternative registration pathways and policies began in 2012. The evaluation will seek to determine whether there are potential performance differences between physicians who were granted registration under alternative pathways and those who registered with Canadian training. The purpose of the study is to ensure that all doctors are performing competently regardless of where training was obtained. Physicians will be compared on their complaints profiles, administrative data (e.g. prescribing) and data collected through a chart review and multisource feedback. The outcome of this study will help enable legislation change for future policies. 

 

Approximately 2000 assessments will be conducted for the evaluation.

1 Recognizing that applicants may receive their education in multiple jurisdictions, for the purpose of this question, include only the jurisdiction in which an entry-level degree, diploma or other certification required to practice the profession or trade was obtained.

Additional comments:

Note:  The CPSO does not keep separate count of the small number of physicians who submitted an application for registration during the year but did not actually become registered members.  We keep count only of those of physicans who apply and become registered members.  Hence, the figures in Table D above are the same as those in the next table, Table E "Jurisdiction where applicants who became registered members obtained their initial education"

 

 

e) Jurisdiction where applicants who became registered members obtained their initial education
Indicate the number of applicants who became registered members in the reporting year by the jurisdiction where they obtained their initial education1 in the profession or trade.

Additional comments:

Notes regarding Table G:
The counts provided for "New Applications Received" includes only those new applications in 2015 that resulted in issuance of a certificate of registration.
The counts provided for "Applicants Actively Pursuing Licensure" combines all the new issuances in 2015 plus estimates of the remaining number of applications submitted in 2015 that were still in process at 2015 year end.
The counts provided for "Applicants who became Fully Registered Members" includes only those new applications in 2015 that resulted in issuance of a certificate of registration. Therefore, the counts here are the same as those in "New Applications Received."
The counts for "Applicants who were authorized to receive an alternative class of licence but were not issued a licence" are recorded as zero.  The CPSO does not officially track these numbers, but the actual number would be very small, i.e. less than 25 in total.
For "Applicants who were issued an alternative class of licence" we are including all classes except the Independent Practice class.  Accordingly, "alternative classes of licence" includes the Postgraduate Education, Restricted, Academic Practice, Academic Visitor and Short Duration classes. 

 

 

 

 

h) Classes of certificate/license
Inidcate and provide a description of the classes of certificate/license offered by your organization.

You must specify and describe at least one class of certificate/license (on line a) in order for this step to be complete.

# Certification Description
a) Independent Practice Description (a)

This is the class of certificate held by 80% of the College's membership. It is the equivalent of the "full license" in other provinces. It is issued to those who meet the standards and qualifications for independent practice in Ontario. It carries a standard term, condition and limitation permitting the holder to practise only in the area of medicine in which the holder is educated and experienced. Other than this standard one, it carries no other terms, conditions and limitations.

 

 

 

 

 

b) Post Gradutate Education Description (b)

This class of certificate is issued only to physicians formally enrolled as a postgraduate medical trainee (e.g. medical residents, clinical fellows or electives) at an Ontario medical school. Holders may practise only within their post graduate training appointment and may not charge fees for services. The certificate expires when the trainee ceases enrollment in the training program.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

c) Restricted Description (c)

This class of certificate carries specified terms, conditions and limitations as ordered by the Registration Committee or by certain other CPSO committees, e.g. Discipline Committee.  Every  application approved by the Registration Committee where the Committee imposes specific terms, conditions and limitations is deemed to be a Restricted certificate.  The Restricted certificate holder must practise in accordance with the imposed terms, conditions and limitations

Note: A person cannot apply directly for a Restricted certificate. Instead, the person must apply for one of the regular classes (e.g. Independent Practice). If the person does not meet the qualifications for that class, his or her application is referred to the Registration Committee. If the Regisration Committee approves issuance of a certicate of registration and imposes specified terms, conditions and limitations on the certificate, it is deemed to be a Restricted certificate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

d) Academic Practice Description (d)

This class of certificate is issued only to academic physicians holding a clinical, professorial appointment (assistant, associate or full professor) at a medical school in Ontario.  Holders of this class of certificate are limited to practising to the extent of the requirements of their academic appointment at the medical school.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

e) Academic Visitor Description (e)

This class of certificate is issued only to visiting academic physicians from medical schools outside Ontario who have a short-term clinical or teaching appointment at an Ontario medical school. They are limited to practising only to the extent of their short-term academic appointment at the medical school, and their certificate automatically expires after twelve months.

 

 

 

 

 

f) Supervised Short Duration Description (f)

This class of certificate is issued for a maximum 30-day term, and only for appointments requiring emergency care or to provide a brief educational program or clinical demonstration to Ontario physicians. The short duration appointment must be based at an Ontario medical school or public hospital. The certificate holder must practice under supervision of an Ontario physician holding an Independent Practice certificate.  The certificate automatically expires after 30 days or when the appointment ceases, whichever comes first.
