Current Assessors

The Assessor’s primary duties are:

  • Orientation of the candidate to the Clinical Field Assessment site including local and regional healthcare services
  • Provision of exposure to clinical situations as appropriate for the purpose of assessment of candidates in these clinical settings (i.e., office care, hospital in-patient care, emergency care, and long-term care)
  • Assess candidate’s practice readiness at the level of A CANADIAN TRAINED FAMILY PHYSICIAN ENTERING PRACTICE
  • Assess candidate’s communication ability
  • Record evaluation of candidate performance on the applicable report forms during the assessment
  • There is no obligation to remediate candidate deficiencies (SIPPA is a Practice Ready Assessment program not a training program)
  • Submit invoice for SIPPA assessment services within 14 days of the last day of the Clinical Field Assessment
