Zone Medical Staff Associations (ZMSAs)

Dr. Catherine Macneil, Calgary

Zone Medical Staff Associations are the local voice for 4600 physicians in the North, Edmonton, Central, Calgary and South zones.

Advocating: We represent all physicians across Alberta in each zone. We organize to address patient care issues, health system changes and the medical profession. We represent member interests on Alberta Health Services Medical Staff Bylaws and Rules committees related to the medical leadership structure, medical staff appointments, clinical privileges, responsibilities and accountability, periodic reviews, and concerns.

Learning: We offer opportunities to our members that support their well-being, medical practice and leadership.

Connecting: We gather socially for physicians to build relationships. Fostering relationships with our colleagues builds better medical practice and brings us together as a profession.

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.
  • Open for all physicians, including community and non-AHS facilities.

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.
