IS THE RACMA CPD MANUAL ONLINE?
All members who are registered as a specialist medical administrator must adhere to RACMA CPD Standards as outlined in the RACMA CPD manual which can be downloaded by clicking here.

The Medical Board of Australia

The Medical Board of Australia sets the standard for Doctors who are recognised on the Specialist Register as medical administrators.  The current standard took effect from 14 June 2011.  All medical practitioners are asked annually on renewal of registration that they have met the CPD standard set by the Medical Board of Australia.  This declaration is subject to audit by AHPRA.  To view the Registration Standard for Specialist Registration click here.
 
The Medical Board of Australia has outlined the registration standard for CPD effective from 1 October 2016. To view this standard click here to be directed to the Registration Standards page on the Medical Board of Australia’s website.
