Continuing Professional Learning (CPL) has a long history of enhancing medical practice by providing learning opportunities to physicians in Saskatchewan through educational conferences approved for MAINPRO-M1, MAINPRO-C, and Maintenance of Certification credits. In specific cases, Continuing Professional Learning has developed individualized learning programs, with the help of College of Medicine faculty.
Continuing Professional Learning has expanded these services to include web-based learning opportunities with case-based educational sessions, conference highlights, extracts from videoconference educational sessions and Grand Rounds. Time spent reviewing these articles is eligible for claiming MAINPRO-M2 study credits from the College of Family Physicians of Canada. Also included, for your convenience, is on-line registration for most conferences.
The goal of these programs is to provide equal access to learning opportunities for all physicians whether they practice in rural and remote areas or in urban areas in close proximity of a teaching hospital. The services will be available to all Saskatchewan physicians regardless of geographical location.
Continuing Professional Learning programming will not be limited to internet-based learning but will continue to provide major conferences and regional programming, videoconferences and home study programs. The CPL website will provide a central resource in which all opportunities are displayed. There will also be the option of hard copy distribution to physicians who prefer this mode of communication.
