For each 12 month reporting period Associate Fellows must complete a minimum of:

  • 25 points per annum - must be peer review and "management related" continuing medical education

To assist in tallying up your CEP we have developed the following list of possible CEP Activities. The general principal employed with the weighting is that 1 hour of CEP is equivalent to 1 point.

The role of the CEP coordinator is to provide coaching and guidance in line with the CEP program. If you wish to speak with your CEP Coordinator please contact the National Office or visit here for details.
