Faculty of Health Sciences CPD recognized with national awards
The U of M’s Faculty of Health Sciences Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programs were presented with two national awards of excellence at the National CPD Accreditation Conference September 28-29, 2015 in Ottawa, ON.
CPD-Dentistry/Dental Hygiene was selected as a recipient of the 2015 Royal College Accredited CPD Provider Innovation Award.
The program was selected for this prestigious honour based on the Oral-Systemic Health Day Interprofessional Education event held in February 2014 at the university. This successful event included 200 physicians, dentists, dental hygienists, nurses and others in a format that combined group learning, interprofessional case-based discussion and skills training. Supported by staff from the entire Division of CPD in the College of Medicine, it now serves as a model for other Royal College-accredited CPD Programs. (Read more here).

This national prize is bestowed upon an educational program that has provided an exceptional learning experience to practicing or practice-eligible CFPC members.
