Welcome to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Cardiff
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Cardiff (CPSC) is an international medical academic institution that is devoted to equipping physicians and surgeons with the intellectual proficiency and skills to enhance their clinical acumen and technical versatility.
Through a variety of structured educational programmes and continued professional development activities, it enables medical professionals at all stages of their career to augment their knowledge, advance their competence, and keep abreast of medical advances, with the intention of delivering an optimal patient care.
CPSC endeavours to provide the highest standard of medical education. Our CME accreditation enables this to be achieved, aiding delegates to meet the six main principles of an individual’s CPD, as described by the UK General Medical Council (GMC), whilst simultaneously adhering to our own strict educational standards.
GMC Principles of Continuing Professional Development 
Responsibility for Personal Learning
You are responsible for identifying your CPD needs, planning how those needs should be addressed and undertaking CPD that will support your professional development and practice.
Good Medical Practice requires you to reflect regularly on your standards of medical practice.
Scope of Practice
You must remain competent and up-to-date in all areas of your practice.
Individual and Team Learning
Your CPD activities should aim to maintain and improve the standards of your own practice and also those of any teams in which you work.
Identification of Needs
Your CPD activities should be shaped by assessments of both your professional needs and the needs of the service and the people who use it.
You must reflect on what you have learnt through your CPD and record any impact (or expected future impact) on your performance and practice.
