Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program

2023 CPD

From 1 January 2023, in line with the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) Revised Registration Standard for all doctors, there are changes to how the required 50 hours of CPD are allocated

All doctors are also required to choose a CPD Home. For RANZCP members, this is the College. 

Trainees and SIMGs will meet their CPD requirements through active participation in their training pathway.


The College operates a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program with the aim of maintaining a high standard of professional practice in psychiatry.

CPD participation is a requirement for medical registration and annual recertification of medical practitioners in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. Active Fellows and Affiliates are automatically enrolled in the CPD program.

Medical practitioners who are not RANZCP members can also participate in the RANZCP CPD program (annual fee applies).
