Update on Changes to CPD


The Medical Board of Australia (MBA) is amending the CPD requirements for medical practitioners. Interns and specialist trainees will meet the requirements by participating in their accredited training programs.  All other practitioners with a practising form of registration will be required to complete 50 hours of CPD per year, based on a personal CPD plan. At least half of this time will be spent doing more active forms of CPD (reviewing performance and measuring outcomes). 

From 2023, medical practitioners will be required to have a CPD home, which will manage their CPD program. For many with specialist registration, their CPD home will continue to be their specialty college, but some practitioners may choose another CPD home. 

Doing CPD independently will no longer be an option for any medical practitioner. Each practitioner will need to declare at renewal of registration that they have completed appropriate CPD, which for those with specialist registration will be the CPD standards set by their college.

This recording of the AMA Online National Conference Day 4 session explores what practitioners can expect from the MBA’s proposed changes to CPD requirements.
