MyCPD Framework

The MyCPD Framework outlines the educational value of CPD activities, and is reviewed by the College’s CPD Committee each year.

Following the release of the Medical Board of Australia’s Professional Performance Framework, a new 2019 MyCPD Framework comes into effect in January 2019.

The simplified Framework strengthens CPD by engaging Fellows in a range of CPD activities from three categories:

  1. Educational activities
  2. Reviewing performance
  3. Measuring outcomes

To help you understand the changes, we’ve put together some frequently asked questions that explain what the MyCPD changes mean for you and why they’ve been made.


The 2018 MyCPD Framework consists of five MyCPD categories that are capped at 50 credits each, to encourage diversity of learning methods. The most common activities claimed by Fellows are listed in each category as examples, but participants can also claim CPD credits for other educational activities relevant to their scope of practice.
