Royal Colleges of Physicians of London, Edinburgh, and Glasgow

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) is a British professional association group dedicated to advancing medical practise, primarily through the testing of physicians. The RCP, founded in 1518 by royal licence from King Henry VIII, is oldest english medical college. Physicians are accountable for staying current in all aspects of their practise. The Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom (Edinburgh, Glasgow, and London) offers an online CPD diary to Members, Fellows, and all other registered post-training physicians. This enables members to keep a yearly personal and verified log of their CPD activity. Members are required to gain 50 CPD credits anually, 25 of which must be external and up to 10 of which can be personal credits. The CPD diary covers a calendar cycle that spans from 1 April to 31 March. Registrants may print or export a PDF of the annual CPD assessment report certificate documenting their CPD credits at the conclusion of each CPD year, which can be presented during their annual appraisal to demonstrate completion of mandatory CPD.
