The newsletters and questions are posted on the website at the beginning of every month. They can be printed and read at leisure over the next month. There will be 10 electronic newsletters in total (commencing 1 March – December 2019) each worth 3 CPD points and therefore a total of 30 CPD points for the year. 6 points for Ethics, Human Rights and Medical Law will be included.


What is the pass mark?

The minimum requirement is a result of 70% to receive 3 CPD points per newsletter.


What if I do not get 70%?

You may submit your answers 3 times only to acquire the required minimum. No points will be allocated thereafter. If you do not achieve 70% after 3 tries contact the GIO to reset and allow 3 more tries. During the year this will change to 2 tries (ref HPCSA).


How long will I have to complete the newsletters and submit my answer sheets?

Newsletters and questions will stay on the web for the year .Submitting the answers on a monthly basis will keep you up to date. The last day for submissions for the year is 3 January 2020 – there will be no extension.
