Accreditation Update

COVID-19: Your annual professional development learning cycle requirements have changed. See below imporatant 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 significan pressures you are experiencing, both personally and professional, 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 all you more time to acquire 250 credits.

Implementing these changes in Mainpro+ will take us a few week. 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 do so.



We recognize that COVID-19 has impacted many of you, either directly or indirectly. This includes pesonal and professional hardships, as well as financial stresses and strains. Our primary aim is to support you during these challengting times:

  • One year will be added to everyone's MOC cycle.

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).
