Medical Staff Rules

Island Health’s Medical Staff Rules outline the details of the organization of the medical staff and the day-to-day processes by which the medical staff provide patient care. Medical Staff Rules are established by the Board of Directors upon the recommendation of the Health Authority Medical Advisory Committee (HAMAC) and the Medical staff.

The Rules do not require approval from the Minister of Health. All medical staff are required to sign in agreement to the Medical Staff Rules before working with Island Health.
