Self-Learning Credits

All CPD credits

Each College (Royal College and CFPC) has a framework of all the CPD credits available to Canadian physicians. Most CPD credits in the frameworks are self-learning credits. "Accredited" and "Certified" refers to program credits which are obtained through an application to a CPD provider, such as UBC CPD. Everything else can be self-claimed:

For specialists: Royal College framework all MOC credits

For family physicians: CFPC framework all Mainpro+ credits
