After an extensive period of study, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada has developed and launched a totally redesigned Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program along with a revised MAINPORT web application.
This streamlined, more flexible MOC program will provide more choices of learning activities, allow more control in planning professional development, and provide greater incentives to participate in self-learning and assessment activities.
To complement these improvements MAINPORT—the web application system where CPD activities are documented—has also been redesigned. A mobile MAINPORT application has also been developed for the Android, iPhone, iPad, or Blackberry and is accessible at https://m-mainport.royal college.ca.
Twelve CPD educators have been recruited from across the country to help MOC program participants learn the new system. Assistance is available from CPD educators in transitioning from the former system—one way the College supports MOC program participants. Other training opportunities include a MAINPORT flash tutorial and one-on-one sessions with Membership Services Centre staff.
