Request an education session

As one of Canada’s largest providers of continuing professional development, the CMPA addresses the educational needs of physicians to help them improve their practices and to provide safe medical care through the continuum of their careers. We provide practice improvement education for physicians in practice and physician leaders. The CMPA provides resources to help manage risk and contribute to safe medical care. The CMPA is not able to set clinical standards, guidelines or policies.

For your request to be considered, please ensure that:

  • request forms are submitted at least 6 months in advance of the planned session
  • the request is sponsored by a CMPA member
  • a minimum of 20 CMPA members attend the session

There is no cost for a CMPA presenter to speak at your event; education sessions are a benefit to CMPA members. However, the requester is responsible for any costs associated with hosting their event (i.e. meeting room, catering, or audio-visual equipment).
