What is a verification check?

At the end of each CPD cycle, 5% of Fellows are randomly selected for a verification check of the CPD they have claimed during their 12-month CPD period. 

Fellows must retain documented evidence of their participation in CPD activities. Templates are available under the Resources tab on the Integrate online platform (see left-hand menu once logged in):

You can upload and store verification documents to your Integrate profile. We recommend that you maintain this online repository by uploading documentation for each CPD activity you log online, in accordance with the Registration Standards/Requirements of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ).


Requirements

Selected Fellows must provide verification documentation as evidence of their participation in logged activities. It is only necessary to substantiate the minimum CPD required hours for each CPD cycle.

Subspecialists selected for a verification check are also required to substantiate at least 35 hours in the area of their subspecialty.

You must also provide evidence of (or complete online) the following CPD mandatory requirements:

Professional development plan (PDP), which includes specific requirements for CREI and CU subspecialists

Annual conversation (AC) for Fellows in Aotearoa New Zealand

CGO subspecialists: a minimum of 20 hours of multidisciplinary team meetings

In addition to the 35 hour subspecialty requirement, CGO, CREI and CU subspecialists will be required to provide evidence of the following: 

CGO – Participation in multidisciplinary team meetings (20 hours)

CREI – Subspecialty checklist to be signed and uploaded

​CU – Subspecialty checklist to be signed and uploaded

Fellows who are one week (or more) overdue submitting their CPD requirements will be automatically selected for a verification check.
 
Fellows who fail to provide verification of their CPD activities within a nominated timeframe, will be referred to the Fellowship Review Committee (FRC).
