The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CPSS) grants medical licences needed for independent practice.
As of December 4, 2017, Saskatchewan transitioned to a single provincial health authority, and credentialing and privileging is expected to be done centrally. Generally, copies of the following documents are required:
The Medical Services Branch (MSB) assigns billing numbers; the CPSS assists with this when physicians are applying for a license.
The Saskatchewan Medical Association (SMA) is the provincial division of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), and is responsible for negotiating for and on behalf of fee-for-service, salaried, and alternate payment physicians in Saskatchewan. SMA membership is conjoint with the CMA membership.
