Why CTAQ is Important to You!
The Role of CTAQ can be briefly summarized by this excerpt from the incorporation document:

"To advance and promote the welfare of teaching clinicians in hospitals associated with Queen's University in the broadest sense."

CTAQ is most visible in its role as one of the four signatories of the South Eastern Ontario Academic Medical Organization (SEAMO). CTAQ, along with Kingston Health Sciences Centre, Providence Care  Hospital and Queen’s University entered into an alternate funding arrangement with the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care in 1994.

The majority of the funding for clinical teachers is provided through this arrangement. Once an agreement has been reached with the MOHLTC, the CTAQ Executive is actively involved in the governance of SEAMO. CTAQ has 5 elected members on the SEAMO Governing Committee. This representation gives us a very strong voice in SEAMO and provides an important forum for communication and cooperation with the university and teaching hospitals.
