Appealing a decision from the Committee on Specialties

There is a process available for those who would like to appeal a Committee on Specialties (COS) decision turning down an application for recognition of a new specialty or subspecialty.

The request for reconsideration must be based on the same information presented when the COS made its decision. The appeal mechanism is not meant for reconsideration on the grounds of substantive new information, or changes or improvements to the application.

For more information, contact cos@royalcollege.ca.
