Print page icon

Have you received feedback about needing to improve in a certain area? Have you self-identified a part of your practice you’d like to develop? We’ve compiled a selection of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and practice improvement resources to support your learning.

*Please note this selection is not meant to be comprehensive or complete, and inclusion is not necessarily an endorsement by the CPSO. 

We organized the resources using the CanMEDS 2015 framework and categorized alphabetically within the most appropriate CanMEDS role. Collected separately below are searchable databases, catalogues and other providers.

For general questions about the CPD regulation, email Physician Advisory Services, or call 416-967-2603 or 1-800-268-7096 ext. 606.

For other inquiries about CPD/practice improvement, email the Education Liaison, or call 416-967-2600 or 1-800-268-7096 ext. 747.
