CPD changes in 2023 for doctors across Australia

As of 2023, continuing professional development (CPD) is changing for not only GPs, but doctors of every specialty across Australia. The Medical Board of Australia (MBA) has outlined new annual CPD requirements, but the RACGP is here to help you navigate the changes as your trusted CPD home.

The new CPD triennium starts next year and with your input, we’ve designed a program that helps you fulfill your requirements and record activities that you’re already doing in your day-to-day life as a GP.

As of 1 January 2023, the new MBA requirements require you to log 50 hours of CPD every year, complete a professional development plan and refresh your skills with one CPR course in the triennium.

The focus of the new changes is on regular performance feedback, collaboration with peers, self-reflection and reviewing patient outcomes – things that you are already doing, and we can help capture. All these activities are aimed at improving practitioner performance and patient care.
