CPD Office 2020–2021 Annual Report

The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) office was created and announced during the Spring of 2020. Our office was formed through the amalgamation of the Continuing Health Sciences Education Program, the Program for Faculty Development, and the Learning Technologies Lab. 

While each portfolio lead has continued to work on their own projects and offerings, this amalgamation has allowed us to work towards greater efficiencies, improved quality, increased productivity, and enhanced scholarship. 

Our office strives for the very best in health profession education, and through the sharing of faculty, resources, and ideas, our office is poised to benefit McMaster and beyond. 

Although the COVID-19 Pandemic created a myriad of challenges, hardships, and obstacles, we have continued to persist, adjust, and adapt; our office pivoted to the design, development, and delivery of exclusively virtual events for the 2020-2021 Academic Year. We look forward to seeing our office grow and develop, as we create stronger ties within our portfolios, and across McMaster as a whole.
