Endorsement from The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners means your clinical guidance, education programme, or event is considered relevant to general practice or rural hospital medicine.
Endorsement grants the recipient use of a College logo subject to terms and conditions.
Please note: we are not currently accepting applications for events that cover topics on medicinal marijuana, as we are reviewing our statement on this subject.
Levels of endorsement
College Faculties should apply for CME endorsement through the Faculty CME application for single activity/event endorsement form.
If you are a pharmaceutical company and/or organisation offering education that is not based on standard practice, please email the endorsement team so we can chat about the best endorsement route for you.
Reviewed against the RNZCGP Guideline Assessment/Endorsement Tool, and is considered relevant and important for use in New Zealand general practice.
Meets some of the standards required for full endorsement.
Our members complete endorsed CME as part of their CPD programme requirements, and trust our seal of endorsement or recognition.
Endorsement is generally awarded to people and organisations supplying continuing medical education (CME) to develop and enhance practitioners’ knowledge, skills, attitudes, and professional judgement.
Endorsed medical education activities closely align with the Medical Council of New Zealand's (MCNZ) expectations of recertification.
