Guide to CPD

Cut-off date for the use of the old CPD ePortfolio – 31 August 2021

In consideration of the difficulties that Fellows, Members and Associates have been experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic and with most appraisals being delayed by approximately 6 months, the College has decided to continue to make the old CPD ePortfolio available until 31 August 2021. This will allow doctors to use their old ePortfolio until appraisal. After 31 August 2021, you will no longer be able to use your old CPD ePortfolio, but this will be available in read-only form until 31 December 2021.

In the meantime, the suppliers of the old CPD ePortfolio will be developing a new and easy way of electronically downloading doctors’ old CPD data for safe keeping. We will keep you up to date with this development.

Please contact the CPD team if you have any enquiries regarding this or regarding the use of the new CPD ePortfolio (tel: 020 7772 6307 or email: The team can provide a telephone demonstration on the use of the new CPD ePortfolio with some practical examples relating to your individual needs.

The College has a new CPD framework, with a new ePortfolio. This section of the site provides an overview of the older CPD framework and the resources the College offers to participants on the RCOG’s older CPD programme.
