** 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.

Note that the CPSO requires an equivalency with the CFPC and therefore the requirement for this category has been set at that same level i.e. 25 hours of CE and 25 Hours of CCI each year.  It is also required that at the least half of these hours be reported each year i.e. 25 hours (any combination of CE/CCI) each year.
