CPD offers practitioners the opportunity to enhance knowledge and skills, professionalism, interpersonal communication, team work and accountability to continue professional practice, and the development of an increased sense of critical awareness.
myASUM supports lifelong learning needs of ultrasound professionals across multiple disciplines. CPD is a requirement across healthcare in Australia and New Zealand and myASUM supports ultrasound specific learning for multiple disciplines and skill development and maintenance.

Council is responsible for ensuring that doctors are competent and fit to practise medicine. One of the ways Council does this is to require doctors to participate in recertification programmes.
Doctors maintain a professional development plan and participate in planned continuing professional development to maintain their competence.
Medical practitioners registered with the Medical Board of Australia (the Board) need to complete a minimum number of continuing professional development (CPD) hours that are relevant to their scope of practice.
The Board’s continuing professional development registration standard is accessible on the Registration Standards page of the Board’s website. This sets out the Board’s expectations in relation to CPD.
