The Office of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of the UNC School of Medicine (UNC SOM) supports the mission of the School of Medicine, to “improve the health and wellbeing of North Carolinians and others whom the School serves”, specifically in the area of physician continuing education.  By applying the ACCME criteria and other best practices in medical education to the planning and implementation of UNC SOM activities, CPD works closely with UNC SOM faculty to offer continuing medical education of the highest quality.

The CPD office provides AMA PRA Category 1 Credit for activities offered by our educational partners, including the departments and centers of the School of Medicine, branches of the UNC Health system, and government and non-profit organizations of North Carolina.
