Professional Development is an essential part of maintaining an
effective registry of qualified professionals. An emphasis on
Professional Development supports and increases the knowledge, skills, and
professionalism of members of a professional association. For
Registered Members of the Canadian Society of Homeopaths, on-going
Professional Development enhances the individual's competency, credibility, and
practice opportunities and ensures that
the public has access to high quality homeopathic treatment.
Individual homeopaths can
achieve their Professional Development goals through:
Pursuing continuing education
Supporting the profession through dissemination of knowledge
Expanding the body of homeopathic knowledge
Promoting public awareness, understanding, and use of homeopathy
All practitioners registered with the Canadian Society of Homeopaths are
required to satisfy Professional Development obligations as part of
their commitment to their homeopathic practice, the Society, and the profession.
Professional Development Credits (PDCs) are assigned to various
professional activities and are calculated
bi-annually. For the period
January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2020, a total of 30 PDCs
will be necessary to fulfill Professional Development
requirements covering both membership years. If excess credits
are earned during this period, a
maximum of 15 of those excess credits may be carried forward and applied
to the following bi-annual Professional Development period.
As of the current 2019-2020 Professional Development period, all post-graduate
continuing education events require recognition from our Accreditation
department before our Registered members can receive credit towards
their annual PDC requirements. Sponsors
of seminars, workshops, and conferences can apply for recognition in
advance and the resulting CSH authorization can be included in their
promotion of each event. Enquiries
about the application process can be directed
to our office.
There are a number of ways in which
Registered members can maintain their Professional Development
obligations, some of which are listed HERE.
Other forms of continuing education and professional activities will be considered
on an individual basis.
