In 2017 the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) released its proposed Professional Performance Framework (PPF). The Medical Council of New Zealand has also recently released a ‘Model for strengthened recertification requirements’. While a Professional Development Plan (PDP) is not currently mandatory, both Regulators propose a future requirement for the development of an annual PDP.
“Setting and achieving goals in a PDP can guide learning to address identified development needs, achieve educational and career aspirations, consider changes for improving the doctor’s own health and wellbeing, and to plan for their future”. 
A PDP is a written plan that outlines a practitioner’s learning goals relevant to their current and intended scope of practice and how they will achieve the goals. It includes self-evaluation of the learning goals and achievements from the previous CPD cycle and the planned CPD activities to achieve learning goals in the current year. 
These resources are intended to help Fellows create such a plan. The suggested approaches are based on the adult learning cycle that includes assessing needs (including self-evaluation), setting realistic and measurable goals and activities, measuring the impact and outcomes of those activities and then beginning the cycle again through reflection.
This information will support you developing a plan either in MyCPD or using any format you prefer or that your employer uses (e.g. as part of annual appraisal).
 The RACP acknowledges the Australian Orthopaedic Association and the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators for sharing their Professional Development Planning resources.
