Active Members Returning to Residency Training
Active members who halt their practice to pursue additional full-time residency training (e.g., emergency medicine, psychiatry, or other) will have their current MAINPRO® cycle stopped and be assigned a temporary Resident member cycle (they may continue to report Mainpro credits as per usual with no restriction on the number of credits that may be earned and reported). Upon completion of residency training, these individuals will be assigned to a new five-year Active cycle; they may carry forward a maximum of 30 Mainpro-M1 and five Mainpro-C credits from their Resident member cycle to this new Active cycle. These individuals are eligible for a reduced membership fee only if pursuing full-time residency training (please contact the membership department for more information).
Note: Training courses and projects that are considered part of a residency program/curriculum are not eligible for Mainpro credits (these are considered medical education versus continuing medical education).
New! Effective January 1, 2010, Active members returning to residency training must submit Mainpro credits online; paper-based submissions will no longer be accepted.
Active Members Completing Post-Graduate Didactic or Enhanced Skills Training
Active members who pursue additional post-graduate education (e.g., Masters of education, PhD in epidemiology) or participate in enhanced skills training (e.g., three months training in obstetrics, pain management or other) will remain Active members and may continue to report Mainpro credits as per usual (no restriction on the number of credits earned and reported). Individual consideration for cycle extension must be made in writing to the CPD Manager; individual consideration for membership fees must be made in writing to Membership Manager.
Active members who pursue post-graduate education and enhanced skills training programs may be eligible to earn 25 Mainpro-C credits upon program completion. Contact the CPD Department for more information, or visit the Mainpro Credits Submission Forms page.
