Mainpro Signatories

Overview

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) has the authority to provide Mainpro-M1 credits for programs developed only by the institution (i.e. Schulich Medicine & Dentistry departments, divisions, units). From time to time, individual faculty members are approached by external organizations to participate on program planning committees, and are asked to sign and submit the Mainpro-M1 application to CPD. CPD is only able to accredit these programs if they are deemed to be institutional programs, i.e. programs which are developed by a department, division or an educational unit of the School.

To ensure that programs developed by faculty in collaboration with external organizations are eligible for Mainpro-M1 credits, CPD has implemented a change in its Mainpro-M1 application process. The change requires a signature on all Mainpro-M1 applications by a CE Director (or designate). The signature will confirm for CPD that program applications submitted by faculty are in fact, programs being developed by the institution. The change applies to all programs including those being developed without collaboration with an external organization. The process will ensure that CE Directors are aware of all accredited Mainpro-M1 applications being offered by faculty in their departments and divisions.
