Maintaining Proficiency

As the provincial college of the CFPC, the ACFP provides and accredits continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities for family physicians in Alberta.

Physicians must participate in CPD as a Standard of Practice to show that they are maintaining their knowledge and skills throughout their careers. The CFPC offers one of two approved CPD programs, MAINPRO® (Maintenance of Proficiency). Mainpro serves three key functions:

  • To provide CPD participation guidelines and standards for Canadian family physicians
  • To enable family physicians to conveniently track and monitor their CPD participation
  • To ensure high-quality, ethical CPD programming through a rigorous peer-review accreditation process


The ACFP is proud to support and develop best practice CPD opportunities for our members, family medicine residents, and medical students.
