Continuing Professional Development

As per section 2-5 of the College Bylaws under the Health Professions Act, all registrants must comply with requirements for continuing professional development (CPD), which requires the registrant to enroll in and be compliant with CPD expectations of either the Royal College of Physicians of Canada (RCPSC) or the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC). 

Currently, physicians who do surgical assisting only (no pre and post-operative care) are exempt from the CPD requirement.
