Policies and Documents

In January 2016, the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) announced that as of February 1, 2018, they would no longer be responsible for the accreditation of health science education programs. Up until now, CMA accreditation has been required for education program approval by the Alberta College of Paramedics. The College is currently exploring other avenues for the accreditation process. The College is also reviewing whether or not the education program approval process will require changes under the Health Professions Act. Existing programs will remain approved during this review period, but no new program approval applications will be accepted until further notice.
