Continuing Professional Development (CPD)


Continuing Professional Development: programmes A-Z

What is Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

Professional training courses provide the opportunity for individuals working in biomedicine and healthcare to develop their knowledge of the latest methods, techniques and emerging technologies influencing their specialist area. Opportunities span areas as varied as dentistry, psychiatry, radiology and midwifery.

Training delivery tends to be flexible, with the opportunity to select study modules of relevance to an individual career at a time that suits you. The emphasis is on ‘Continuing Professional Development’ (CPD) – modular training that provides mutual benefit to the individual receiving the training as well as their employers.

In certain instances, CPD training can be structured to allow the award of a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma in order to provide some academic recognition for the training undertaken.
