Royal College of PsychiatristsMandatory
Psychiatrists must undertake 250 hours/credits of peer group approved educational activity during each 5 year period.
The CPD committee also recommends that all psychiatrists complete an annual 100 hours of reading per year.
Psychiatrists should record their CPD activity on the ‘My CPD Portfolio’ form.
In order to quality assure their CPD system and in order to verify that claimed activities have been undertaken and are appropriate, the College will audit participants’ activities on a random basis.
