Maintenance of Certification

The Canadian Paediatric Society is an accredited provider of continuing professional development (CPD) for the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. This program is designed to enhance the professional development of specialists.

Accrediting your education activity

As an accredited provider, the CPS is able to accredit continuing professional development activities from other organizations for Maintenance of Certification.

Why accredit your program?

  • Peer-review ensures all content is relevant to paediatrics.
  • It demonstrates your commitment to quality educational programming.
  • Paediatricians and paediatric subspecialists require MOC credits to maintain their Royal College fellowship.

Through an agreement with the American Medical Association and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, all CPS accredited educational activities are eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™.

Claiming MOC credits (physicians)

Meet your annual MOC requirements through CPS programs

All CPS educational offerings are accredited for MOC. From our national conference, regional CME courses, eCME online education, PREP The Curriculum® and committee guideline work, we provide many opportunities for physicians to meet the annual MOC requirements.

All learning activities must be entered into the Royal College’s MAINPORT web application by January 31 each year. For information on the MOC program participation and requirements, visit the RCPSC’s website
