It is with pleasure that the Council and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan recently published the 2021 Annual Report of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan. An annual report is the fruit of much collaboration and many hours of work, and we have strived to provide the most accurate and relevant information possible.
The year covered by this report was one of adaptation, adjustment and accommodation, and of determination to do what was needed to carry out our regulatory activities and keep our staff and Council safe.
We hope that you will enjoy learning about the College’s activities in the past year, and how Council and staff worked diligently to rise to the challenge of continuous improvement in fulfilling its mission to serve the public by regulating the practice of medicine and guiding the profession to achieve the highest standards of care.
