Career Pathway Series 301: Understanding the Intersections within CPD

  • Registration Closed

CPS 301 is designed to provide a foundation for navigating and understanding the ways in which an individual’s professional roles and responsibilities intersect with decisions related to:

  • CME/CE accreditors, representing multiple learner types in the US and abroad
  • Interprofessional stakeholders from administration, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and allied health
  • Vendors, and supporters from pharmaceutical and medical device companies
  • New and emerging trends, technologies, and innovations in the field

Format: CPS 301 will be conducted as a two-part, virtual live workshop on November 1 and November 15. During the workshop, attendees will receive instruction from a team of seasoned faculty, participate in interactive activities, and engage in self-reflection exercises designed to explore areas of interest within the field.

Target Audience: Early-to-mid career professionals who want to develop professionally in the field; gain confidence for their current and future roles; discover and connect the “whys” of what they do to successful CPD program design and management; receive tips and strategies for dealing with the issues and challenges CPD organizations often face; and identify next steps to further professional growth. 

Topics: Weeks 1 and 2 topics will include finding and using your voice as a leader and understanding the educational landscape.
