Accrediting/Certifying Your Activity

Planning programs for physicians in the Maritimes

When you’re organizing a Continuing Professional Development program for specialists or general practitioners in the Maritimes, it’s important to understand the process from the outset to ensure everything goes smoothly.  

Dalhousie Continuing Professional Development and Medical Education (CPDME) can help you design a program that meets the necessary standards for accreditation and guarantees that your attendees get the most out of your event.

Ensuring credibility

More and more, patients are demanding transparent health care professionals who remain uninfluenced by marketing. When you offer an accredited program, you’re guaranteeing a well-structured and unbiased learning opportunity.

We are able to accredit for both the CFPC and the RCPSC for physicians from across the Maritime provinces. Only accredited programs are eligible for the revalidation process with regulatory organizations.

The process is easy

For essential information on accreditation/certification please read  Accrediting/Certifying Learning Events for Physicians before you begin this process.

The accreditation process is not difficult, but we do need to be involved from the start of the planning process so please contact Continuing Professional Development at and we will ensure that you receive more information.

Please note:  Level 1 and/or Section 1 accreditations are for one year ONLY.
