Accreditation

Are you a Physician Organization?

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada will only accredit continuing professional development (CPD) activities that have been developed by a physician organization. Please check on the definition of 'Physician Organization' before preparing your application.


Learning Events cannot be accredited retrospectively

Statements on any promotional materials indicating that an activity is “pending approval” are strictly prohibited. Applications submitted within two to six weeks of the learning event will be levied a late fee. Applications submitted within two weeks or 10 business days of the learning event will not be reviewed. Additional fee payments may apply for complex application reviews. The CME & PD Office reserves the right to ask for additional documentation to verify administrative, educational and/or ethical standards have been met.
