Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in Health Professions

Information about the course

Our comprehensive ESME CPD course is a self-paced course for anyone with a role in CPD education. Bringing perspectives from a global group of CPD experts the course offers a solid foundation in the principles and practice of CPD education.

The overall aim of this course is to equip practitioners with a solid understanding of the underpinning principles of effective CPD, as well as with a range of tools and techniques to incorporate into their own practice.

What will be covered:

Six modules will provide an introduction to CPD education and then support you in identifying professional practice gaps, designing and delivering CPD activities, evaluating CPD activities and programmes, and ensuring that your CPD is underpinned by sound strategy and principles of equitable access.

Who it’s for:

This course is aimed at those with a responsibility for designing, delivering or evaluating CPD or CME activities or programmes. It may also be of value to those involved in regulating, accrediting or funding CPD programmes for health professionals. While there are no prerequisites, and anyone is welcome to register, please note that this course is not primarily aimed at clinicians seeking to plan their personal CPD.

Delivery format:

The modules use a blend of activities, including video, audio, reading, practical and reflective activities and quizzes. This is a self-paced course, and we estimate that it will take the average learner around 60-80 hours to complete.  There is no minimum time requirement; you can spend as much or as little time as you need to understand the key concepts.

What’s included in the registration fee:

You’ll get full access to the course for six months from the start of your enrolment which includes all of the course content plus a bank of additional readings and resources.

Although the course is designed to be self-paced and self-directed, you will have access to learning support and the opportunity to learn from and with colleagues around the world via the course forums. You will also be invited to join our exclusive programme of live teaching sessions for the duration of your enrolment. These cover a range of topics and provide the opportunity to meet and interact with tutors and other course participants. You can access technical support by email for the duration of your enrolment.

Taking it further:

Studying this course and submitting an end-of-course assessment will qualify you to receive an AMEE Essential Skills in CPD for the Health Professions Certificate.
