Emeritus Status

Print page icon

Emeritus status is a distinction granted to independent practice physicians who were members in good standing for 25 or more continuous years. You must be fully retired from practice and resigned from the CPSO.

Emeritus status holders:

  • Are recorded as such in the CPSO's public register.
  • Cannot write prescriptions or otherwise practise medicine.
  • Continue to receive CPSO publications.

We will advise you whether you are eligible for emeritus status when you resign from membership with the College. You must complete a form and renew annually, but there’s no associated fee.
