The Physician Clinical Teachers’ Association was established in 2008 to address the need for a democratic organization to effectively represent the interests of the physician clinical faculty of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine.
The objectives of the Association include “to act as a bargaining unit representing the physician clinical teachers of NOSM” as well as to act as a vehicle “to unify the physician clinical teachers of NOSM and to promote harmony and understanding amongst them and the medical profession at large”.
In addition, the Association is directed “to assist and encourage Physician Clinical Teachers to continually increase their professional knowledge, skills and proficiency” with membership in the PCTA being limited to Physician Clinical Teachers of NOSM who are in good standing with the OMA and hold a current CPSO certificate of registration.
The PCTA holds an annual meeting of the members to elect the Board and present the audited financial statements. The PCTA Board elects the PCTA executive. Board meetings are held monthly or at the direction of the President. The Board appoints representatives to the Northern Ontario Academic Medicine Association (NOAMA) Board, a as well as NOSM committees requesting PCTA representation.
PCTA appointees represent the majority on the NOAMA Board and its sub committees.
PCTA members have agreed to cover the operational expenses of the organization through an annual allocation from the AFP Funding based on the budget approved at the Annual General Meeting of members. PCTA Board members and PCTA appointees to committees are remunerated in accordance with the OMA guidelines and the PCTA Compensation Policy.
