ANZCA and FPM CPD Program

To ensure every patient in Australia and New Zealand receives cutting edge care, all specialist anaesthetists and specialist pain medicine physicians are required to​ participate in a continuing professional development (CPD) program.

Access to our world-leading online CPD program is free for fellows, and available to other registered medical practitioners for an annual fee.​

The ANZCA and FPM CPD Program is accredited by the Australian Medical Council (AMC) as a CPD Home, and authorised by the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ).
