GP begs college: 'Please reduce my CPD fees'

Melbourne GP Dr Michael Kreltszheim is asking the RACGP to justify charging nearly $1000 to collect CPD points during the pandemic

The RACGP is facing pleas to ditch its fees for this year’s CPD program following widespread disruptions to medical education because of the coronavirus threat.

The Medical Board of Australia has already announced it is suspending its CPD requirements for 2020 due to the difficulties doctors face in attending educational events.

The move means doctors renewing their medical registration will not be audited for CPD compliance during 2020, possibly extending to 2021
