The CPD standard for doctors is changing.

On 18 July 2021, Health Ministers approved the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) Ahpra’s revised medical Registration Standard: Continuing Professional Development with the revised standard taking effect from 1 January 2023.

To meet the new standard, from 1 January 2024, all doctors (other than those who are exempt) will need to participate in the CPD program of an approved CPD home. With the introduction of CPD homes next year, we are seeking Australian Medical Council (AMC) accreditation as a CPD home supporting all doctors, irrespective of their registered scope of practice.

To help us offer the medical profession a valued CPD home service, please tell us a little bit about you, how you currently manage your CPD, and what you are looking for from your future CPD home.
