Optimal health for everyone through continuing professional development


UBC Continuing Professional Development (UBC CPD) is an academic unit within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia. We advance the field of continuing professional development (CPD) through the design, delivery, accreditation, evaluation and research of lifelong learning opportunities for health professionals in British Columbia and beyond.

As a learning organization, we believe in the power of education, connection and reflection to support a thriving health-care system in pursuit of healthy communities, social justice and knowledge translation.


Optimal health for everyone through continuing professional development


We work collaboratively to design and deliver exceptional learning opportunities for health professionals that improve care and respond to emerging health needs.

Our Values

Our values represent who we are. In addition to the values of respect, integrity, compassion, collaboration and equity that we share in the Faculty of Medicine, the values of our division are reflected in each member of our team and provide the foundation for how we work together.

Collaboration. Our vision cannot be achieved in isolation. We build and nurture strong, supportive and trusting relationships with those we work with and whom we serve.

Curiosity. We are empowered to be inquisitive, learn from diverse perspectives and to try new ways of working to deliver programs that evolve with an ever-changing learning environment.

Quality. We create education grounded in quality improvement and best practices for adult learning.

Humility. We recognize our responsibility as a partner in the health-care system to support reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples and Nations, advance anti-racism, and improve diversity, equity and inclusion.
