** Important Information for Clinical CPSO/CPD Members (Ontario Only)

A Government regulation mandating Continuing Professional Development (CPD) was passed in Ontario in July, 2011. This requires that a physician in Ontario must have proof of a required number of educational credits in order to renew their license to practice medicine. CPD credits may be reported via the MDPAC once the appropriate consent form has been signed.
