Active Members Returning to Residency Training
Active members who stop their practice to pursue additional full-time residency training (e.g., emergency medicine, psychiatry, or other) will have their current Mainpro+ cycle stopped and be assigned a temporary Resident member cycle (they may continue to report Mainpro+ credits as per usual with no restriction on the number of credits that may be earned and reported). Upon completion of residency training, these individuals will be assigned to a new five-year Active cycle; they may carry forward a maximum of 40 certified Mainpro+ credits from their Resident member cycle to this new Active cycle. These individuals are eligible for a reduced membership fee only if pursuing full-time residency training (please contact the membership department for more information).
Note: Training courses and projects that are considered part of a residency program/curriculum are not eligible for Mainpro+ credits (these are considered medical education versus continuing medical education/continuing professional development).
Active Members Completing Post-Graduate Didactic or Enhanced Skills Training
Active members who pursue additional post-graduate education (e.g., Masters of education, PhD in epidemiology) or participate in enhanced skills training (e.g., three months training in obstetrics, pain management or other) will remain Active members and may continue to report Mainpro+ credits as per usual (no restriction on the number of credits earned and reported). Individual consideration for cycle extension must be made in writing to the CPD Manager; individual consideration for membership fees must be made in writing to Membership Manager.
