According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), CME is “the abbreviation for Continuing Medical Education and consists of educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession.” CME, short for Continuing Medical Education, encompasses educational activities aimed at developing and expanding professional skills, knowledge, and performance of physicians who provide their services to patients and the public.
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. CPD is a holistic approach towards the enhancement of personal skills and proficiency throughout a professional’s career.
Continuing Professional Development and Continuing Medical Education are frequently used interchangeably, most literature has now defined CME as being an ingredient of CPD. CPD is a process that includes continuing medical education.
For a conversion of CME/CPD credits to your own local accreditation credit system, we highly advise you to consult with the institution in your country.
