About NOSM Education Research Communities

Committees

The CEPD Office is supported by a number of committees that guide the governance, the operations and the program development of all CEPD activities.

CEPD Advisory Committee

The Continuing Education and Professional Development (CEPD) Advisory is a governance committee and a standing committee of NOSM’s Academic Council. The CEPD Advisory Committee oversees the implementation of the CEPD programs and activities in alignment with the Academic Principles and Strategic Direction of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine.

Comprised of representative stakeholders, membership is determined to ensure that a broad range of constituents, representing varied interests have a voice regarding the governance of the CEPD Office. 

Subcommittees of the Advisory include the Faculty Development Committee and Program Planning Committees which are responsible for planning, implementing and reviewing all continuing education programs accredited through the CEPD Office, in compliance with the Committee on Accreditation of Continuing Medical Education (CACME) accreditation standards.
