This is an overview of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists' (RCO) program.

The CPD program of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists started in 1996. With clinical governance, annual appraisal and revalidation becoming essential ingredients of clinical practice, participation in CPD is no longer optional. It has been the case for some time that registration for CPD is necessary to hold any College post, including that of examiner. This "sanction" is likely to be extended such that, not only registration but accrual of the stipulated number of points will become a prerequisite to holding College posts. In the fullness of time, responsibility for training junior doctors will also be determined by full participation in CPD.

The College has taken on board the views of their membership and the lessons learned from their first eight years experience with CME/CPD, and implemented a major revision of the CPD program.
