New to planning an educational event?
It is important that you answer the following questions before you get started. Knowing some basic guidelines will ensure that the planning process can proceed a little more effortlessly.

  • Is this event going to be awarding continuing medical education credits?

    Yes – Accreditation is our specialty! Continue reading for quick tips on accreditation. For more information on accreditation visit Event Accreditation here.

    No – We can still help design and facilitate your event. Please see Event Planning Services below, and then request our Conference and Event Planning Services, or let us help you with your Online Event Planning.

  • What are the requirements of the planning committee?

    For accredited events, members of the planning committee must reflect the target audience and declare any conflict of interest prior to the planning process. It is essential that the program is based on an assessment of the needs of the target audience and the objectives of the program are a reflection of those needs.

  • Can the University of Manitoba accredit both Royal College and CFPC credits?

    Yes. The CPD Medicine program may assign Section 1 MOC Royal College credits and CFPC Mainpro + certified credits to successful applicants. However, a designated member of the CPD Medicine program must have substantial involvement in the planning of the event for any CFPC credit allocation.
