Maintenance of Proficiency

Physicians must participate in continuing professional development (CPD) as a Standard of Practice to demonstrate that they are maintaining their knowledge and skills throughout their careers.

The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) offers one of the two available and approved CPD programs, Mainpro+® (Maintenance of Proficiency). The Mainpro+ program is designed to support and promote CPD for family physicians.

Members must fulfill Mainpro+ requirements to maintain their membership in the CFPC and/or their CCFP designation.

As the provincial chapter, the Alberta College of Family Physicians supports its members by offering our own Mainpro+ certified CPD opportunities and upholds the standards put in place by the CFPC for CPD delivery as a chapter administrator for program certification.

My name is Smitha Yaltho and I feel privileged to work as a family physician. Why? I believe that being a family physician has been the best job any physician can hope to have. I have personally grown in my own abilities and skill-sets with diverse opportunities in ambulatory practice, acute care and work in Facility Living.  Working in primary care has been exciting and has also afforded me tremendous opportunities for growth while still remaining stimulating in its complexity.  I believe that Family physicians are trusted partners in patient care –  every step of the way. 

Why are you volunteering to serve on this committee?
I currently have an interest in Physician Leadership and  trauma informed care.  I have served as a director with the Board of Directors with the Edmonton North PCN, Edmonton’s largest PCN. Thereafter, I have worked as the Director of Medical Services with CapitalCare (also based in Edmonton) for almost 6 years. It is my express wish that my contribution on the ACFP board of directors will highlight the excellence of family medicine that exists right here and now within the Alberta health care system. 

What about the ACFP’s work do you find most valuable?
Ability to highlight and further support the excellence of primary care right here in Alberta.
