HPCSA has updated the CPD Process as of 2022.
The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) has amended aspects of its policy on Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme, below are the amendments: -
Surigcom members can access all their previously stored CPD certificates from www.mycpd.co.za and use the Find my Certificate function.
No, but it is recommended in case proof of attendance is required with the event organizer / facilitator.
HPCSA recommends to Event Organizers and CPD Facilitators that all CPD records should be sent and uploaded to the HPCSA immediately after an event. Doctors should query with the HPCSA a week after the event / CPD activity was done if the points have not been allocated.
The HPCSA portal will notify the doctor when the profile is updated. Doctors can also login to the HPCSA portal to view their CPD status.
CPD (CEU) points are valid for 2 years after the day of completion of the CPD activity. It is important for Doctors to note this.
A CPD Compliance Letter verifies that the doctor is compliant for a given CPD period (2 years). Some employers and hospitals require their doctors to submit regular CPD Compliance Letters for a specific period.
Doctors can use the HPCSA online portal to access their compliance letter. (More info)
