CPD Homes for our Junior Doctors

As outlined in the Medical Board of Australia’s revised ‘Registration Standard: Continuing Professional Development’ all registered medical practitioners will need to join an approved Continuing Professional Development (CPD) home by January 2023. 

A CPD home is an organisation accredited by the AMC, to provide a CPD program for medical practitioners. A CPD home may be an education provider, another organisation with a primary educational purpose, or an organisation with a primary purpose other than education.

If you are a trainee with a specialist medical college this change will be easy for you as the AMC will transition all specialist medical colleges to be CPD homes for their trainees. The list of colleges is available here.

If you are a medical student or PGY1/PGY2 doctor in a prevocational training program it will also be easy for you as you are not required to join a CPD home.

If you are a prevocational trainee in PGY3 or above, and yet to become a trainee with a specialist medical college, you will be required to be registered with a CPD home and will have various options to select from.  The details of these organisations will not be confirmed until later in 2022. 

For further information please refer to the AMC.

Understanding the Notifications Experience

Getting support early is important for any practitioner going through the notifications process.

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) recognises that having a concern raised can be stressful, and are working to support practitioners and the public who engage with Ahpra as part of the notifications process.

Ahpra have developed ‘Let’s talk about it’; a series of resources and videos to help health practitioners better understand the notification process, including what happens when concerns are raised with Ahpra.

Click here to learn about common questions practitioners have when a concern has been raised about them, and here to hear about a practitioner’s first-hand experience of what it was like to be the subject of a notification.
