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.
The Physician Recruitment Agency of Saskatchewan, saskdocs, has resources you can use to find positions in the province.
