Adjudicators, or members of the Tribunal, hear and decide OPSDT cases. They may be:

  • physician members of the CPSO Council,
  • public members of CPSO Council appointed by the Lieutenant Governor, or
  • non-council physicians and experienced adjudicators appointed by CPSO Council.

CPSO Council is the board of directors of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.
