Continuing professional development (CPD)
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a vital endeavour for all microbiologists, whether they're academics, in industry, or business. CPD allows us to build our skills, expanding our individual skill repetoires and adding value to ourselves professionally. Many things we do as scientists outside of the lab already fall under the umbrella of CPD - such as attending conferences, workshops, and taking part in knowledge exchange - and many of these activities can gain official accreditation from CPDUK to create a measurable output that can be put on your CV.
SfAM currently offers accreditation for all of its events to registered attendees, regardless of membership status or career stage. For more information on SfAM's CPD accreditation, contact us.
