Earning and Claiming CPD credits via the CJO

Earning CPD credits

You can earn Section 2 credits toward your Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements by: 

  • Reading CJO articles: each journal article that you read and deem has had a significant impact on your learning or practice can be recorded individually — you will receive one (1) credit per article.
  • Peer reviewing CJO articles: you can earn up to 15 credits per year as a Peer Assessment activity. The 15 credits are eligible for your yearly contributions. 

Claiming CPD credits

To claim CPD credits for reading CJO articles, you must record them in your MAINPORT ePortfolio as Section 2 Self Learning credits.

To claim CPD credits for peer reviewing CJO articles, you can either record them in MAINPORT yourself, or you can opt into our automatic transfer program and we will submit your Section 2 Peer Assessment credits directly to the RCPSC every year. The credits will appear in your MAINPRO dashboard for your review and approval. To opt into this program, please contact the Managing Editor at [email protected].
