The Physician Learning and Practice Improvement Community of Interest is an online community for CPD providers, leaders, administrators, accreditors and patient partners. This online community, led by the College of Family Physicians of Canada, is an initiative of the Coalition for Physician Learning and Practice Improvement (the Coalition). It was launched in October 2019.

Why join? To interact and learn from others who have a passion for CPD; to get your questions answered and to help others with theirs; to improve your and your colleagues’ practices in CPD development and leadership; to help build up the CPD community in Canada and beyond.

Who can join? We invite physicians and non-physicians with a passion for CPD and practice improvement to join at The community is hosted on the CMA website. You do not have to be a CMA member to participate but you will need to create an account on to access the community.

Our shared vision – This online space is a place where the Canadian CPD community can connect with each other and advance the quality and impact of CPD across the country. Our goal is to create the conversations and support the initiatives that help build a CPD system in Canada that supports physician learning and practice improvement. It’s a system that is increasingly responsive to patient and community needs, based on evidence and practice data, and is oriented towards meaningful improvements in physician practice and patient outcomes.

The Coalition was established in 2019 by seven national medical organizations with the goal of carrying forward into action the recommendations contained in the Future of Medical Education in Canada (FMEC) CPD report. The Coalition is supported by the following collaborators: The Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC), Canadian Medical Association (CMA), Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA), College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), Fédération des médecins spécialistes du Québec (FMSQ), Federation of Medical Regulatory Authorities of Canada (FMRAC), Medical Council of Canada (MCC) and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) along with representatives from universities, regulatory authorities and patients. The Coalition seeks to expand the CPD community in Canada and encourage the evolution of CPD to activities that focus on social responsibility, are evidence-based on practice, and focus on changes in practice.
