Continuing Professional Development
We seek accreditation for selected offerings as evidence of our commitment to:
- meet nationally approved educational standards
- provide study credits for maintenance of certification
- ongoing quality improvement
The quality of our offerings continues to be validated through accreditation by:
- The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC)
- Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC)
- Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL)
Important note: CFPC credit transfer delayed
With the launch of the new Mainpro+® program, the automatic transfer of CPD credits has been delayed owing to technical issues. Credit transfer is normally scheduled quarterly. Credits have not been sent to the CFPC since June 22, 2016, but credits are still being accumulated on cma.ca and can be reviewed under
“My CPD activities”. We are working to resolve the issues and will post updates as they become available.
