Continuing Professional Development

Medical Physics, Radiopharmaceutical Science and Biomedical Engineering are fields characterised by constant innovation and progress, therefore the continuing professional development of members is a key priority for ACPSEM.

ACPSEM’s CPD program has been developed in line with other global health industry CPD standards to provide members with current, high-quality, and innovative learning and development opportunities so that they may solidify and adapt their skillsets and expertise to keep pace with innovations in their specialties as their careers progress.

The ACPSEM CPD program gives members structured and considered access to learning and development opportunities, broader resources, and a formal mechanism to track and demonstrate the ongoing currency of their knowledge, technical skills, professional experience and exposure.

The active and engaged participation of our members in the CPD Program is crucial to enforcing the clinical and professional relevancy of ACPSEM Registration beyond initial qualification; and, to improving the standing, professional standards and safety practices of medical physicists, radiopharmaceutical scientists, and biomedical engineers in Australia and New Zealand.

Active and satisfactory engagement in the CPD program is a condition of ongoing inclusion on the ACPSEM Register of Qualified Medical Physics Specialists.

Examples of the ongoing educational opportunities that ACPSEM designs, organises and faciliates:

  • Leadership Program
  • Summer School
  • Scientists and Engineers in Leadership Mentoring Program
  • Webinars
  • Courses

For a breakdown of the CPD program structure, see CPD Program details or read the CPD Handbook.


The current CPD period began on 1st January 2019 and will end on 31st December 2021.
