NEW CPD requirements for medical practitioners
from 1 January 2023, the new Medical Board CPD Registration Standard comes into effect. From that date, medical practitioners will be required to develop an annual professional development plan and to undertake at least 50 hours of professional development.
While ANZSOM will not be a CPD Home, we will continue to provide high quality educational opportunities to meet the new requirements.
Focus on trainee opportunities - Occ Med 101 series
Trainees in occupational and environmental medicine are the future of our profession and we are pleased to offer discount membership to them as well as educational opportunities to complement their training.
