The College endorses continued medical education (CME) providers to ensure our members have access to a library of quality courses, events and online activities to meet their continuing professional development (CPD) requirements.

Why be professionally endorsed?

Endorsed providers can promote their activities on our events page to Fellows and registrars in training for Fellowship (GPEP programme). Endorsed providers have the advantage of the College endorsed CPD activity logo when advertising their event.

How to be endorsed

The process starts with an application, which is weighed against a set of standards set by the College guidelines.

While endorsed providers get complimentary event posts, non CME-endorsed events cost $270+GST to be listed on the College website. See our advertising rate card for more information.

Please send your application at least six weeks before your event(s) start date to allow time for processing and advertising your application.
