Boost your potential with the RACGP CPD program

3 minute read

CPD is not simple, but it can be straightforward. Australia’s largest medical college can unlock your professional development.

Dedicated GPs know that continuous professional development (CPD) is not just a requirement, but an essential aspect of career growth.

But dedicated GPs are also time-poor and we’ve received lots of feedback suggesting the new CPD requirements can be onerous amid our increasingly busy lives, which is where the RACGP can help – we’re not just another professional development provider; we’re your natural home for CPD.

With more than 30 years of experience in delivering high quality CPD programs for GPs, we understand the ins and outs of your everyday work. The RACGP’s CPD program has been designed by GPs, for GPs.

Our innovative online platform, myCPD Home, provides professional development solutions, activities, and tools to track your progress against the Medical Board of Australia’s CPD requirements. Whether you prefer live webinars, on-demand series, peer-to-peer learning, face-to-face events, or engaging medical journals like AJGP and Check, we have it all covered.

It’s also important to remember that most doctors are already engaging in CPD through their daily practice, and annual hourly requirements can be fulfilled through a diverse range of relevant activities.

As part of our offering, we’ve formalised and codified these tasks to provide GPs with a framework to capture and maximise this work’s educational value. From well-organised practice meetings to discussions on challenging clinical cases with colleagues, learning happens everywhere, which is why we’ve made it easy for participants to ‘Quick Log’ CPD on the go, including those valuable corridor conversations with peers.

Performance reviews, another CPD task commonly cited by GPs as proving difficult, are actually straightforward when you delve into the details and the RACGP has created study guides to make this process seamless for CPD participants.

Best of all, it’s all included in your college membership – no additional expenses or time-consuming endeavours required as CPD is seamlessly integrated into your membership benefits.

As Australia’s largest medical college, we’re also intimately aware of the diversity within our ranks and the different needs GPs have depending on their interest and career stage.

This understanding has allowed us to curate professional development content across various delivery formats, giving members the freedom to choose tailored CPD solutions specific to their individual circumstances.

In addition to the practical ways in which the RACGP can help members on their CPD journey, we also have the advantage of being the primary college for GPs in Australia. We set the standards for general practice and our CPD program aligns with the college’s educational standards and curriculum, ensuring its relevance and quality.

So, if you’re ready to embark on your professional development journey, simply download the myCPD app and log in to myCPD Home and explore the range of CPD solutions on offer. We’ve made it user-friendly and convenient so you can get started without any hassle.
