Resident Affiliates can now carry forward MOC credits earned during residency
As of July 1, 2013, Resident Affiliates who document learning activities in MAINPORT during their residency program can transfer up to 75 credits (25 in each of the MOC Program categories of Group Learning, Self-Learning and Assessment) into their first five-year cycle following certification and joining the Royal College as a Fellow.
Why was this change made?
The Royal College’s MOC Program is a continuing professional development program designed to support lifelong learning and is mandatory for all Fellows. This policy will allow residents to become familiar with the MOC Program and MAINPORT throughout their residency, easing the transition into professional practice when continuing professional development becomes crucial for annual re-licensure.
How can residents participate?
To take advantage of this, residents must register as a Resident Affiliate, track their CPD activities in MAINPORT, then join the Royal College as a Fellow following certification. Click here to complete the online application form.
