The PARA Executive Board is responsible for implementing the direction set by the PARA Assembly. Through their work on the Executive Board, resident physicians access opportunities to fulfill a number of CanMEDS roles:
- develop leadership skills
- liaise with health and medical education stakeholders
- represent Alberta’s resident physicians at the regional, provincial and national levels
The Executive Board elections take place early in each new year to encourage a mentorship period between the current and incoming PARA Executive Boards. This experience offers the opportunity for self-growth and the chance to have a direct influence on the future of residency in Alberta. Members of the Executive Board receive support from the PARA office staff throughout their term.
