  • Interested in advocacy for family medicine in the Calgary Zone?  The Community Medical Staff Association (CMSA) wants you! 

    The Calgary and Area Medical Staff Society has an important role in representing and advocating for the needs of physicians.  Medical staff associations exist for each hospital and for Alberta Public Labs, but the Community MSA is the voice for physicians in community-based practice.  CMSA is your advocate for matters related to medical leadership structure, medical staff appointments and privileges, as well as issues that are unique to community-based physicians.  Representatives from AHS and AMA look to us to speak for the needs of community physicians and give our perspective on local and provincial issues.

    Joining the Community MSA brings other benefits.  You gain access to educational and leadership workshops, receive a digital subscription to Vital Signs, and get an opportunity to meet your specialist colleagues, RF representatives and AHS leadership.  CMSA is the place to hear about and advocate for community physicians on issues that affect you and your colleagues. 

    As a relatively new MSA, we are looking to expand our membership, and in particular would like to welcome some younger colleagues who are interested in an introduction to advocacy work and who bring to us the perspective of someone new in practice.  Commitments are flexible and remuneration is available.  If you would like more information, please contact Dr. Margot McLean (President) or Dr. Elisabeth Woolner (Secretary-Treasurer) at margot@shawcable.com or ewoolner@shaw.ca.  To join the CMSA, you may email us, or zmsaadmin@albertadoctors.org.

Hello CMSA Members,

I would like to introduce myself and Dr. Betsy Woolner. We are the President and Secretary/Treasurer of the newly resurrected Community Medical Staff Association (CMSA), a subsidiary MSA of the Calgary & Area Medical Staff Society (CAMSS).

We are both former Board members of Calgary West Central PCN. Our role is to represent community physicians separately from the PCNs and the Department of Family Medicine. We are able to do that largely because we are voting members of CAMSS and the AHS Zone Medical Administrative Committee (ZMAC).

Thank you,

Margot McLean, President CMSA
