CAG Receives a Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) Accredited CPD Provider Innovation Award for Its Educational Portal (ePortal)

September 2012

The review committee was impressed with CAG’s submission which offers various opportunities for its members to learn and gain Maintenance of Certification credits.  On behalf of the CAG and the ePortal Committee, Dr. Kevin Waschke received the award at the Royal College’s CPD Accreditation meeting in September.  Not all physicians are able to attend educational events and/or unable to garner their required credits by attending meetings. The ePortal provides an important tool to meet these needs by offering a comprehensive web‐based platform which provides an opportunity for physicians to access an extensive library of presentations and learning materials.
