RACMA Continuing Professional Development Manual

RACMA provides an online CPD tool that enables members to maintain their CPD requirements for the College as full time medical administrators or clinician managers.The online CPD tool can be accessed by clicking here

RACMA recognises the important learning that is generated through participation in learning activities that are both formal and informal, through the College or through other providers or activities outside the College.

Member’s CPD activities are reviewed and endorsed by jurisdictional CPD Coordinators and the CPDC Chair to ensure compliance with the CPD activity requirements outlined in the RACMA CPD Manual.

There are two standards that members need to maintain:-

·         Standard 1 – Development of Professional Practice; Audit and Peer Review

·         Standard 2 – Continuing Medical Education; Self Directed; RACMA Education Activities; College Meeting Attendance & Participation

2016/2017 Transition Arrangements

For both 2016 and 2017 the RACMA Board has approved transition arrangements for Standard 1 of the CPD standards which Fellows must complete at least one Standard 1 activity for each year, this may be either an audit OR peer review activity. This was conveyed on page 8 of the CPD Manual, March 2016 version.

Triennium Reporting Periods

Until 2016 Fellows were required to complete at least one Standard 1 self-review and/or 360 degree activity during each triennium (p8 October 2011 CEP Manual).  The above transition arrangements overrule this previous Standard 1 requirement.

Associate Fellows are required to complete one audit per triennial reporting period.

Triennium reporting periods are as follows:-





AHPRA/Medical Board of Australia Annual Audits

AHPRA have confirmed they will be conducting ongoing annual audits for all practitioners listed on the specialist register. Members will be contacted direct if they have been randomly selected by AHPRA for audit purposes.  The College is not advised by AHPRA who is being audited.

To ensure that you comply with the Medical Board’s audit requirements, you will need to supply a copy of your RACMA CPD Certificate AND a letter from RACMA confirming that we have audited your annual CPD activities and the accompanying evidence. If you are contacted by AHPRA for audit, please contact the College so that we can undertake the audit and provide you with a letter confirming compliance.  Please call the College on +61 3 9824 4699 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

It is important to note that the CPD Certificate alone will not be sufficient to pass AHPRA audit.
