CPD Credits

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada’s Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program is an evidence-informed educational initiative designed to support, enhance and promote the continuing professional development (CPD) activities of MOC Program participants, including the Canadian Ophthalmological Society (COS).

COS can help you achieve your continuing professional development goals – discover the variety of ways you can earn CPD credits or claim CPD credits.

New – MOC Committee Newsletter

Spring 2016 issue

Dear COS members,

As ophthalmologists and physicians, lifelong learning through continuing professional development (CPD) is at the heart of what we do. Taking care of our patients requires us to keep up with current standards and maintain and enhance our competence, knowledge and skills.

As members of the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) committee, an arm of the COS Council on CPD, we would like to provide you with a list of CPD activities accessible to you. Below you will find a wealth of resources. They vary from online learning modules to live, interactive sessions.

Take advantage of these resources to earn all the credits you need to meet the annual requirements of the Royal College. Remember to enter your credits into MAINPORT as you complete CPD activities.

A big thanks to Cheryl Ripley for helping to synthesize these resources. Members of the COS MOC committee include: Dr. Colin Mann, Chair, Dr. Chloe Gottlieb, Dr. Phil Hooper, Dr. Rob Shertzer, and Dr. Glen Hoar.
