A College endorsement means that the CME activity has met a series of quality educational standards and the activity is deemed of value to members. Endorsed activities will closely align with the expectations of the MCNZ for recertification.

Endorsement options

Registered provider

For providers offering (and/or able to offer) a range of CME activities on a variety of learning topics on a regular basis, either nationwide or in a specific geographic area or field of practice. This can include e-learning activities.

Regular endorsement

For providers offering educational learning activities on one learning topic, multiple times throughout a year. This can include e-learning activities.

Single event endorsement

For providers offering a one-off educational learning activity or conference. This can include an e-learning activity.

New endorsement criteria - from 1 October

The criteria for endorsement are in five categories. Providers must meet these educational criteria in order for a CME endorsement to be considered.

Application and endorsement fees - from 1 October

To reflect the administrative costs we face, the College will be introducing application and endorsement fees from 1 October 2019.

Important information about our fees structure:

  • A non-refundable administration fee applies to all applications, even if you are not charging for your activity.
  • Your endorsement fee is based on the type of provider you are - see 'Endorsement options' above for all provider types.
  • Endorsement fees are waived if you are providing a free activity to GPs.
  • If you are providing both free and chargeable activities your endorsement will be split into two separate endorsements: an endorsement for your free activities and a further endorsement for your chargeable activities.

The fee structure below applies to domestic providers. If you are an international organisation and wish to provide education to New Zealand GPs, please contact our CPD Team.
