Council is responsible for ensuring that doctors are competent and fit to practise medicine. One of the ways Council does this is to require doctors to participate in recertification programmes.
Doctors maintain a professional development plan and participate in planned continuing professional development to maintain their competence.
For more information see:
To ensure that you are continuing to maintain your competence to practise medicine, you must meet recertification programme requirements set by Council, including any minimum continuing professional development (CPD) requirements.
