CPD

5 posts in this topic

Simple question.

How do I enroll for CPD.

Was enrolled before, but had a career break.

I understand things have changed now, and the 190 quid a year thingie has stopped.

I might have to become a member of royal college to do CPD i.e. pay them the standard 500 quid or so scam fee.

Or is there any other way to get good standing for CPD.

dont really think there is any other way sadly. revalidation is an issue also.

yep, that is whole point and purpose of CPD and appraisal now.. and even the College is cashing in.. they have now introduced the Affiliate category to the College where you pay 320 odd pounds as annual fee and this includes Affiliateship and some other perks..

whereas till July 2012 they had the CPD-only charge of 190 pounds, which was more than enough for most people in career grades who didnt have an MRCPsych and paying 500 odd to retain the title of MRSPcych.
