CME | COVID-19: CME Statement

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak CME, and in consultation with our Leadership in the College of Medicine, CME has decided to postpone all currently scheduled in person events till the end of June 2020.
This decision was not made lightly. Directives from many levels (College of Medicine, Health Canada, SHA, U of S)  that incorporate guidelines/directives around social distancing, avoiding gatherings of health care professionals, avoiding gatherings that involve the elderly and non-essential gatherings on the U of S  campus where our events are held, have been taken onto consideration. This is also in alignment with the majority of University CME offices nationwide who have made similar decisions recently.
CME will continue to monitor the situation with our Dean and Vice-Dean Education who are directing the College’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. CME will reach out to all the planning committees for our events that are cancelled and explore possible future steps around each event. No decision can be made at this time regarding outright cancellation or possible rescheduling later in the year as the situation changes daily. We have made arrangements for all those registered to be provided with refunds. Please contact (306)966-5539 for refund inquiries.  If you have additional questions about one of our learning events, please contact a CME team member at (306)966-7787.
We share the disappointment in not being able to host our events.
James Barton - Associate Dean - CME


Your annual professional development learning cycle requirements have changed.
See below important messages from the CFPC and the Royal College.


Our primary aim at the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) at the moment is to support you during the COVID-19 pandemic. In recognition of the significant pressures you are experiencing, both personally and professionally, we will be implementing the following actions:
  • Waiving the 2019-2020 annual continuing professional development (CPD) requirements (25 certified and/or non-certified credits).
  • Extending all current Mainpro+ cycles by one year to allow you more time to acquire 250 credits.
Implementing these changes in Mainpro+ will take us a few weeks. We will send an update when this work has been completed. Should you wish to enter CPD activities in Mainpro+ to count toward your requirements, please continue to do so.


We recognize that COVID-19 has impacted many of you, either directly or indirectly. This includes personal and professional hardships, as well as financial stresses and strains. Our primary aim is to support you during these challenging times:
  • One year will be added to everyone's MOC cycle.
  • 40-credit minimum requirement for 2020 is waived.

The College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan, is a strong supporter of outreach education for all physicians in Saskatchewan. Through this website and associated distance education initiatives, we hope to provide up-to-date, relevant learning materials which will enable physicians to design and access continuing medical education and professional development to meet their individual needs, and to do so in their own working environment.

The quality of medical care offered to the people of the province depends in great measure on the effectiveness of the physicians and other health care professionals who provide it. The College of Medicine encourages all physicians to take advantage of the services offered through the Division of Continuing Medical Education in meeting their learning needs.

Through effective continuing medical education programs, the Division of Continuing Medical Education assists physicians in their efforts to provide the best quality of patient care. As much as possible, physicians are involved in planning, conducting, and evaluating all programs because continuing education is most effective when participants share in all phases of the program.

CME staff are eager to provide you with progressively more available, more effective, and more enjoyable continuing education opportunities. Your opinions, ideas, and requests are welcomed to assist in planning and developing the most helpful programs. Further information about learning opportunities is available from the Division of Continuing Medical Education.

The Division of Continuing Medical Education also collaborates with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Medical Association and The Ministry of Health in delivering and supporting the Practice Enhancement Program (PEP).
