Provincial Practice Review and Enhancement Programs

Most provinces conduct organized practice review programs. These are usually sponsored by the provincial licensing authorities and are conducted by themselves, or by medical associations or universities. Members may claim MAINPRO-C credits for participating in these as long as they use the experience and information generated to reflect actively on their practice. Members should complete and submit the specific “Submission form for MAINPRO-C credits" form for provincial practice review and enhancement programs (available at in PDF format). If the assessment and feedback is very comprehensive, more than one form can be submitted as long as each one is based on a distinctly different question. Three (3) MAINPRO-C credits can be claimed for each form submitted.
