CPD/CME for Australian and New Zealander users

BMJ Learning users from Australia and New Zealand can claim CPD/CME points for completed modules from a wide range of local medical and nursing colleges.

Some colleges officially accredit BMJ Learning. Others do not require formal accreditation and allow participants to claim 'self-directed' or 'self-reported' CPD/CME points for online learning activities.

The current guidelines* of each college appear in the table below. If your college does not appear on this list, please contact us for further information.
