Australian College of Aesthetic Medicine

ACAM has incorporated all the Medical Board of Australia’s new CPD requirements into is new CPD Home platform. Each member, fellow and CPD Home user is expected to complete 150 hours of the ACAM CPD Program throughout the triennium. Each member fellow and CPD Home user are expected to complete 50 hours per annum of education to meet this requirement.


CPD 2023-2025 Triennium

Each year 50 hours of Continual professional development must be completed, and this must be done

  • 25 hours – reviewing performance and measuring outcomes:
    • doctors decide the best mix of these activities to suit their practice, with five hours minimum of each type 
  • 12.5 hours – traditional learning or educational activities – reading, lectures, conferences etc
  • 12.5 hours free choice of activities – doctors allocate these CPD hours.

A full list of how these hours can be accrued can be found in the CPD Handbook.


Professional Development Plan


You are now required to develop a professional development plan (PDP). ACAM have developed a PDP template and matrix to assist you with this process.


Mandatory Activities


Mandatory activities are required to be completed before the college can issue the member, fellow or CPD Home user with their CPD Completed Certificate.  A completed CME certificate will not be awarded if these skills/certificates are not completed within the triennium.  The mandatory activities do contribute to the annual point count; these activities are chosen to contribute to best practice guidelines, increasing practice standards and increasing patient safety in aesthetic medicine.

The five mandatory activities that must be completed are:

  • Infection Prevention and Control Certificate.
  • COVID-19 Infection Control Certificate.
  • ACAM Ethics Examination.
  • Laser Safety Officer Course.
  • Accredited Life Support Course (CPR/BLS/ALS etc.).

The remainder of your CPD Program is self-structured and can include various activities, including contributions to your college.
