The Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians provides an online CPD Diary to help members, fellows, and all other registered post-training physicians maintain a personalised and validated record of their CPD activities on an annual basis.

We also approve events and distance learning modules for CPD purposes, and these approved events appear on our online database which is available through the CPD Diary.  Over 20,000 doctors use the CPD Diary and have access to this unique resource of approved CPD activities.
