The Office of CEPD’s mandate is to accredit all programs led by Course Directors who are faculty of U of T Faculty of Medicine, and which use the logo of the University in their promotional materials.
U of T accreditation involves a peer review of the academic process to certify that the curriculum is rigorous, scientifically sound and qualifies for continuing education credits for the participating healthcare professionals. All continuing education programs undergo this quality review process. After being peer-assessed they are then approved by the Faculty of Medicine Continuing Education Directors and Leaders Committee (comprised of Continuing Education directors of each of the Faculty’s departments), as well as the Faculty Council Continuing Education Committee (FCCEC). The committees review each program for its attention to educational principles such as needs assessment, clear objectives, appropriate format, evaluation strategies, conflicts of interest and other matters necessary for accreditation.
All programs are reviewed according to the accreditation criteria established by the following bodies, thereby ensuring the awarding of credits to attendees:
- The College of Family Physicians of Canada
- The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada
- American Medical Association
- European Council for Continuing Medical Education
- other governing organizations and bodies as required or appropriate
This accreditation process also ensures that our core values of life-long learning and critical inquiry and scholarship are upheld in a manner consistent with the U of T Faculty of Medicine reputation.
