CPD changes for Australian doctors | Webinar + Q&A Feb 2023

From 1 January 2023, CPD accreditation has changed for all medical practitioners in Australia. We recently held a short presentation with Q&A to explain the changes, answer your most common questions about what doctors need to do now, and explore how HealthCert helps make your CPD easy.

This webinar explores how CPD requirements have changed for all doctors practising in Australia and explains what you need to do to comply. It covers everything you need to know about CPD hours, activity types, and how to accumulate the required hours.

To help you meet the new requirements, HealthCert certificate courses have been redesigned to include all three mandatory CPD activity types and provide you with the minimum 50 hours requirement.

In short, completing just one single HealthCert certificate course will tick off your entire annual 50 hours CPD requirement.

You can choose from any of HealthCert’s university-assured certificate courses, providing foundation to subspecialist knowledge in a range of special interest fields. The courses can be completed fully online or with an optional practical workshop in Skin Cancer, Aesthetic Medicine or Clinical Procedures available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth throughout the year. Explore courses.
