What’s CPD?

CPD (continuing professional Development) is a range of learning activities through which health professionals maintain and develop throughout their career to ensure that they retain their capacity to practice safely, effectively and legally within their scope of practice. To ensure the quality and standards of health services in our Country the Federal ministry of Health (FMoH) has made CPD courses a necessity. The competency of health professionals is continually developed through this standardized in-service training.

So far Ethiopian health professionals have been using international platforms and websites to get free CPD courses. For this increasing demand, many associations and health organizations have been working on platforms that aid health professionals in getting easy access to these courses. a new platform has been launched by the Ethiopian Medical association with the collaboration of WCEA (partner of the world medical association) to meet this demand.

The platform provides with a wealth of education for Nurses, Midwives, Doctors and other health professions. It comprises of an online platform and a mobile app consisting of more than 300 courses.

It enables you to download hundreds of courses, study them offline and take the exam which will later update your CPD records automatically (when connected with a council). In addition, there will be webinar hosting which will enable you to register within the App.

The 300 + courses loaded across the subjects are listed below.
