Organizer Requirements

The Michener Institute is representative of education programs across the 5 campuses of the University Health Network (St. Patrick Campus, Toronto General Campus, Toronto Western Campus, Princess Margaret Campus, and Toronto Rehab Campus). We now have a continuing education and professional development framework to help you ensure high educational quality for a full range of professions on TeamUHN.

Specifically, for the issuance of Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Section 1 and 3 credits, The Royal College has granted Michener the ability to accredit CPD activities it develops, or co-develops. Individuals, teams, or organizations not affiliated with Michener, and who seek to have a learning activity accredited by Michener, can pursue the accreditation process so long as there is a Michener representative (staff, faculty, or instructor) who are part of the planning.

In order for a program to qualify for review and accreditation to issue MOC credits, the CPD activity organizer must meet one of the criteria listed below:

  1. The UHN organizer has a formal affiliation with Michener (e.g. staff or faculty appointment)
  2. If the UHN organizer does not have a formal affiliation with Michener, the UHN organizer is co-developing the CPD activity with an organizer at Michener. Learn more about co-development.
