Access to our world-leading online CPD program is free for fellows, and available to other registered medical practitioners for an annual fee.
Our CPD program is accredited by the Australian Medical Council (AMC), and authorised by the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ). It operates on a three-year cycle, with triennial and annual minimum requirements.
Participants record, monitor and provide evidence of their completed CPD activities conveniently through the online CPD portfolio, under the categories of practice evaluation, knowledge and skills and emergency responses. We also provide a wide range of e-learning resources, courses, events, podcasts, webinars, and workshops to help CPD participants meet their requirements.
