Zone Medical Staff Associations (ZMSAs)

Dr. Susan Hutchinson from the Edmonton ZMSA

Zone Medical Staff Associations (ZMSAs) are a crucial layer of representation in zone-related matters and are the representative bodies in matters related to Alberta Health Services Medical Staff Bylaws and Rules.

What are ZMSAs?

ZMSAs are:

  • Independent organizations with their own governing bylaws.
  • Mandated by the AHS medical staff bylaws and aligned with the AMA.
  • The zonal representative body for physicians, both those with AHS appointments and those without.

Membership in ZMSAs is voluntary. Which zone am I in?

Covenant Health has medical staff bylaws similar to those of AHS but has its own medical organizational structure with separate staff associations. These associations can affiliate with the larger ZMSA.
