The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario is the body that regulates the practice of medicine to protect and serve the public interest. Their system of self-regulation is based on the premise that the College must act first and foremost in the interest of the public. All doctors in Ontario must be members of the College in order to practice medicine. The duties of the College include issuing certificates of registration to doctors to allow them to practice medicine, monitoring and maintaining standards of practice through peer assessment and remediation, investigating complaints about doctors on behalf of the public, and conducting discipline hearings when doctors may have committed an act of professional misconduct or may be incompetent.
