Free tool to track registration requirements
The AMA has developed a free online tool to help doctors to keep track of the information they need to meet the Medical Board of Australia’s annual continuing professional development (CPD) requirements.
Each September, practitioners, when renewing their Medical Board registration, may be required to provide evidence they have complied with the Board’s CPD requirements.
The AMA CPD Tracker has been developed to enable doctors to progressively gather and organise the information needed to substantiate declarations made to the Board about CPD, so that evidence can be quickly and easily produced on demand.
The AMA CPD Tracker can be used to:
· List courses completed, including the organisation that accredited the CPD activity;
· Store all certificates of completion;
· Keep a log of practice-based reflective activities, including clinical audits, peer reviews and perfomance appraisals; and
· Log hours spent on online learning, reading journals, teaching and other activities.
The system keeps a tally of hours, enabling practitioners to keep track of what needs to be completed before the end of the registration year.
The Tracker has been developed taking full account of the requirements set out in the Medical Board’s Continuing Professional Development Registration Standard.
The service is free to AMA members. Non-members can subscribe for an annual fee of $250.
