CASL has Accreditor Provider status in the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) Maintenance of Certification Program and is able to approve programs meeting Sections 1 and 3 criteria.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) extends beyond traditional continuing medical education, which is perceived to focus on updating medical knowledge. In CPD, practitioners define competencies that they see as relevant to their individual practice needs. CPD covers subject matter such as doctor-patient communication, interdisciplinary team skills and risk management, as well as other competencies defined by the Royal College’s CanMEDS 2005 Framework. CPD activities utilize a wide variety of education and content delivery formats.
