Continuing Medical Education

CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR PHYSICIANS


COVID-19:  Changes have been made to Maintenance of Certification requirements during the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Click here for details.

Physicians must remember that they are required to enroll in a continuing professional learning program and complete a certain number of educational credits over their CME learning cycle in order to be eligible to renew their professional registration (licence). Click here for new information on the MainPro+ Program


For your convenience, the College has provided below a list of suggestions of conferences and other educational opportunities which may be of interest to you.  Some of these educational opportunities offer MainPro or Maintenance of Certification credits that can be applied to your learning cycle obligations.

The College recommends physicians contact the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) or the Canadian College of Family Physicians of Canada (CCFPC) to obtain information on the program requirements and dates of their respective learning cycles.
