An iOS app to aid doctors in their continuing professional development (CPD).

Apadmi have worked with the General Medical Council, the UK's independent regulator for doctors to launch a new app to improve the way UK doctors manage their continuing professional development.

Input from 120 doctors

The app allows doctors to easily record details of their CPD tasks which they are required to carry out. This includes activities outside of undergraduate education or postgraduate training such as attending conferences and seminars or reading academic papers. As doctors are obliged to keep their knowledge and skills up to date throughout their working lives, and are required to provide evidence of CPD in regular appraisals and revalidations, the app will help them to track and organise this.
In 2013, the GMC's Promoting Professionalism Board approved the principle of developing a mobile app to promote and support professional practice among doctors after discovering that the existing mobile and web applications available only allowed doctors to record basic details of CPD but none offered a full range of features and advice. The concept of a comprehensive mobile app was developed with input from more than 120 doctors from different specialities, and at different stages of their careers.

“This has been an exciting project to be involved with. As the UK’s independent regulator for doctors, the GMC is one of the biggest names in the healthcare sector and the fact that they've put their trust in us is very pleasing. ”
