Mission and vision of CPD

Our mission is to promote excellence in healthcare through facilitation of life-long learning, collaboration, and research. We aim to provide current, evidence-based educational opportunities for physicians and other healthcare professionals in all Maritime locations.

Our vision is to be recognized as leaders in professional development, gain momentum in faculty development, promote innovation in educational practices, and conduct education research in the pursuit of new knowledge and its translation into practice. By striving for excellence, forging strong relationships with clinical milieus, and serving healthcare professionals and teams, we aim to improve the quality of care in the Maritimes.
