About Us

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of PEI was formed in 1988 by the Medical Act of PEI.  Its purpose is to license all physicians and surgeons on PEI, and to handle complaints.  While the College does licence doctors on PEI, it is not responsible for hiring.  For more information on hiring, check the Physician Info pages.

The Mission of the College is to provide:

"Competent caring physicians, public protection, and caring competant professionalism."

The College's vision is to:

"Assure excellence in the provision of medical care by our members throughout the province, by establishing and maintaining the highest standard of care and professionalism.  The College of Physicians and Surgeons will assure that Prince Edward Island is a preferred province to practise medicine by having a public focus while maintaining physician sensitivity."
