We begin this year with one of the most important topics for General Practitioners in 2024: what are the Continuous Professional Development requirements for doctors and how have they changed?
Our special guest is Rachel White who is the Managing Director for the Australian Medical CPD Standards (AMcpdS) who has over twenty years supporting high quality medical education. We discuss the yearly requirements for doctors, component breakdown and what has changed.
This is the story of CPD for 2024.
And here is a summary of CPD requirements, supplied by Rachel.
We are also thrilled to announce that 6 of our genetics episodes from our catalogue (‘genetics module’) have been approved for official CPD hours for General Practitioners. These episodes are:
- Episode 10: Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH)
- Episode 15: Lynch syndrome
- Episode 21: Marfan syndrome
- Episode 30 & Episode 31: BrCa (Breast Cancer genes)
