This is indeed a golden moment in the history of BeMRCOG Ltd. Our courses are now accredited by the CPD Standards Office, UK. This validates our commitment to excellence, as well as, guarantees a high standard service to our subscribers.
CPD stands for Continuous Professional Development and CPD credits are now globally used to validate the competencies of medical doctors. CPD credits are a proof that you are continuously striving to maintain your standards in medical practice. These credits are granted on any accredited activities that you engage in, out of your work place, but the activity does contribute to your professional development. Most of the Medical Councils require a certain number of these credits at the time of revalidation or renewal of your licence to practice. Other uses of these credits are in annual appraisal, job planning and PDPs. CPD accredited activities are also funded by some organisations where they cover your educational allowance. You can also include these activities in your RCOG CPD portfolio.
