MyCPD of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP)

 

             Description:

 

The MyCPD is an online accredited continuing professional development program designed as a quality assurance activity to support self-reflection and insight into the way RACP members learn.  The self-reflection allows participants to plan and record their professional development needs gaining an insight into the educational value of an activity, and to critically think about current practices to identify future learning needs. The self-reflection of RACP members aims to improve and plan future learning, and ultimately encourage change in clinical practice and improving patient care. 

 

MyCPD participants are required to accrue a minimum of 100 CPD credits each calendar year. Credits are accrued in the categories of: educational development, teaching and research, group learning activities, self-assessment programs, structured learning projects, practice review & appraisal and other learning activities.

 

The MyCPD is operated by the RACP.
