GP courses are a great way to get ahead in your career and gain new skills. However, before you start studying for a GP course, you need to know what GP CPDs (continuing professional development hours) are and what GP accreditation is.
GP CPDs are just like any other type of CPD, but they're designed for GPs. This means that you can earn credit for learning about topics such as patient care, medical ethics, and communication skills.
GP accreditation is a certification program that confirms that you've learned the required skills from your GP course. This means that you're ready to start practicing as a GP.
Both GP CPDs and GP accreditation are expensive. However, they're worth it if you want to stay ahead of the curve in your field. If you have any questions about GP CPDs and GP accreditation, our community is here to help.
How does my registration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) work?
To be eligible for registration as a doctor in the province of Ontario, you must meet all requirements set out by the CPSO. If you're applying at least four months before graduation, we'll be working with your principal's office and giving them instructions. You can expect that they will want to send an acceptance letter before you're officially registered. Your registration will also depend on how many courses you take before starting your clinical training.
