HOW TO CALCULATE HOURS FOR THE ROYAL COLLEGE MAINTENANCE OF CERTIFICATION PROGRAM

Hours submitted to the Royal College Maintenance of Certification program will be converted into credits. It is the responsibility of each individual physician to track and submit to the Royal College the number of hours obtained from attended lectures.

• As a registered participant at the Society's Annual Meeting, you may claim your hours (one hour per hour of activity) under Section 1 of the Continuing Professional Development Options in the Royal College Maintenance of Certification Program for all individual sessions attended.

• If you participate as faculty in any one of the sessions, you may claim under Section 6 of the Royal College Maintenance of Certification Program, additional hours for preparation time for the session (one hour per hour of activity) when you acquire new knowledge.

• If you attend a Best Practice Course as defined by the Royal College Maintenance of Certification Program, you may claim your hours under Section 5 of the Continuing Professional Development Options. Section 5 activities receive two credits per hour.

• If, in association with these educational events, you participate in a Self-Assessment Program approved by a Royal College Accredited Provider, you may claim your hours (which the Royal College will double) under Section 3 of the Continuing Professional Development Options in the Royal College Maintenance of Certification Program.

• If by attending one of these Continuing Professional Development Programs, you pursue the development of a personal learning project, you may claim additional hours under Section 4 of the Continuing Professional Development Options in the Royal College Maintenance of Certification Program.

• If you attend, in association with these planned educational events, formal committee meetings of the Society which are focused on the development of standards of care, health care policy, and development of educational material, you may claim one hour per hour of activity as per Section 6 of the Continuing Professional Development Options in the Royal College Maintenance of Certification Program.
