237. A physician or dentist wishing to practise at a centre operated by an institution must make an application for appointment or renewal of appointment to the executive director in the manner provided by regulation under paragraph 1 of section 506.
The executive director shall, in writing, inform the physician or dentist making an application for appointment of the state of the organization plan and of the medical and dental staffing plan of the institution as approved by the agency.
Before referring an application for appointment or renewal to the board of directors, the executive director must obtain from the council of physicians, dentists and pharmacists a recommendation concerning the qualifications and competence of the physician or dentist, and the status and privileges that should be granted to the physician or dentist by virtue of the appointment. The council of physicians, dentists and pharmacists and the director of professional services must be consulted on the obligations that must be attached to the enjoyment of the privileges granted by the board of directors. Such obligations must be established clearly and be aimed at ensuring the physician’s or dentist’s participation in fulfilling the institution’s responsibilities, in particular with respect to access to services and the quality and pertinence of such services. The physician or dentist concerned shall then be invited to submit observations on those obligations. The executive director shall forward the observations to the board of directors on receiving the application for appointment or renewal.
In the case of an application for renewal and before referring the application to the board of directors, the executive director must also obtain an opinion from the director of professional services concerning the physician’s or dentist’s compliance with the terms set out in the resolution made under section 242.
