I am an ANZCA provisional fellow

Participation in the ANZCA and FPM CPD Program is part of your training requirements. This is because the program prepares you for specialist practice, so makes your transition to being a specialist anaesthetist (FANZCA) easier.

As a ANZCA provisional fellow, you need to complete at least 50 hours of CPD. You can choose which activities you record to make up these hours.
