Type: Board Motion Regarding Public Safety

Former Registrant: Dr. Phyllis Ohm (Former Registrant #1820)

Date: November 29, 2019

Status: Closed

On September 12, 2019, the Inquiry Committee opened an investigation on its own motion into certain allegations about the Registrant’s ability to practise independently as a psychologist while complying with the College’s professional standards.

While that investigation is still ongoing, the Registrant decided to voluntarily cancel her registration with the College, effective November 7, 2019. The Registrant has not admitted to having breached professional standards, and no findings have been made by the College’s Inquiry Committee regarding the allegations that are currently being investigated. However, as a result of the Registrant’s voluntary change in her registration status, she is no longer authorized to practise as a psychologist in British Columbia. The investigation was closed on the basis that she is no longer a registrant of the College.

In these circumstances, the Board of the College has directed the issuance of this interim notice to the public as being in the public interest.
