The General Medical Council has launched the ‘GMC My CPD’ app to help doctors manage their continuous professional development.

Suitable for Android and Apple devices, the app’s features include facilities to:

  • record as many learning activities as needed with options to categorise them as desired eg according to the GMC’s Good Medical Practice domains, or personal development plan objectives;
  • assign CPD credits to activities and keep a running tally of activities recorded during the appraisal year;
  • note any planned changes to the doctor’s practice, with a prompt at a future date to consider the effects of the change;
  • export learning activities from this app to other CPD/appraisal/revalidation systems.

“There's no need to store lots of certificates from conferences at seminars – you can take a picture with your device and append them to the learning activity on the app,” says the GMC.

The app provides tips and case studies to help doctors plan and reflect on their CPD and prepare for appraisal. It also has a hot topics section which highlights potential learning opportunities.

Niall Dickson, GMC Chief Executive, said: “Consultation with doctors revealed that many already have a system for managing their CPD, though not necessarily a portable one. The app can complement those systems, or act as a single way of recording learning for doctors who do not currently have one.”

The app was developed by Apadmi, which developed the BBC iPlayer app.
