The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Committee - AMEE
The AMEE Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Committee

The AMEE CPD Committee’s mission is to advance strategic priorities for CPD that positively impact health care systems and health outcomes for all.

Continuing professional development/continuing education (CPD/CE) refers to the process of ongoing, lifelong learning to maintain competence, licensure and/or certification. CPD/CE encompasses the period of time a health professional is in practice following the completion of their formal training. Our approach is building an AMEE CPD global community with the goals to introduce and advance the quality and efficacy of CPD, increase the awareness of CPD’s value, support innovation in CPD, promote and facilitate CPD scholarship, and support CPD educators and leaders.
