WHO CAN BE AN ASSESSOR?
Ideally, assessing practices should be comprised of three or more physicians, but a minimum of two physicians willing to act as assessors. Where it is necessary, separate practices may share this responsibility.
Each site must identify:
Primary Assessor: this physician must have a full license from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC (the College) and have been engaged in active clinical practice for at least three years, of which one year must have been in British Columbia.
Secondary Assessor(s): this physician must, at a minimum, have a provisional license from the College and have been engaged in active clinical practice for at least three years, of which one year must have been in British Columbia.
Physicians are required to attend a PRA-BC Assessor Training Workshop conducted by the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine's Division of Continuing Professional Development (UBC CPD).
