Self Learning

Affordable, convenient way to keep up-to-date with worldwide medical literature.

Self LearningTM is a College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) continuing professional development (CPD) program that allows physicians to evaluate their clinical knowledge and receive further information on clinical topics in the medical literature. Each issue contains multiple choice questions based on peer-reviewed medical journals plus Short Answer Management Problems (SAMPs) that explore topics in greater depth. Self Learning provides your entire annual requirement for Mainpro+® certified credits.

How It Works

Self Learning is a subscription-based program.

Upon joining, your subscription will begin with the next available issue. When your first issue has been published, you will get an email notification letting you know the new content is available. 

If you signed up to receive booklets as well as online access, your first booklet will be mailed at the end of the month in which it is published. 

Our issues are published in February, April, June, August, October, and December.

Back issues can be purchased by contacting us directly.   

Members of the CFPC, AAFP, and those registered with the College as Non-member Mainpro+ Participants can earn up to 30 certified credits per year for subscribing to Self Learning.
