Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Medical Staff Association?
The Medical Staff Association is the organized group of ALL the members of the medical staff. In this regard it is different to Medical Departments, who have much smaller, more focussed groups of members. Composed of all the physicians (midwives and nurse practitioners are not included at this time), its role is to
- Reflect any matters of general concern to the medical staff;
- Make sure that the rights and privileges of the individual members of the medical staff are maintained, and
- Be notified if any member of the medical staff is faces with discipline, so that we can make sure that he or she knows their rights under the Bylaws.
How is it established?
The Medical Staff Association (MSA) is established under the Medical Staff Bylaws for the Vancouver Island Health Authority (available on the Members page).
