If you are organising an event or course for doctors in your hospital or workplace, it may fall under the Internal (Practice Evaluation and Development) CPD Category, and if so, it is not necessary to apply for CPD approval.

Typical Internal events include:


  • case conferences
  • journal clubs
  • Advanced Cardiac Life Saving (ACLS), PALS, or similar courses.


Doctors are required to collect evidence of having attended these activities.


This Guide to Verification of Internal Events gives advice on how to provide evidence of attendance.


Key Responsibilities for Registrants, Training Bodies and Employers describes your responsibility as an employer to facilitate your doctors in maintaining their professional competence.
