About GMC My CPD

If you’re a doctor practising in the UK, you’ll be familiar with the challenges of maintaining your CPD amid a pressured work schedule.

Opportunities for learning happen every day, though we don’t always have time to note them down, never mind reflect on them.

The GMC’s My CPD app for doctors lets you keep a record of your learning on the go. As long as you have your phone or tablet close by, you’ll be able to note points of learning and reflections, quickly and easily, there and then.

You can maintain as many activities as you wish, and categorise them according to the GMC’s Good medical practice domains, your personal development plan objectives, or however you like.

You can also assign CPD credits to activities and keep an eye on how many you’ve recorded during your appraisal year.

Of course, ultimately CPD’s about improving the care you provide for patients, and the app can help you chart that too. For any learning activity, you can note a change you plan to make to your practice, and it will prompt you at a future date to consider the effects of the change.

Many doctors already have a system for managing their CPD, though not necessarily a portable one. You’ll be able to export any or all of your learning activities from this app to another system as you need to.

Gone will be the days of having to store hundreds of certificates from conferences at seminars – you can take a picture with your device and append them to the learning activity on the app.

Tips and case studies to help you plan and reflect on your CPD and prepare for appraisal are also provided, plus news highlighting learning opportunities.

This app has been designed for all licensed doctors who are registered with the General Medical Council in the UK.

To keep your information safe and secure, the GMC’s My CPD app is designed not to run on a rooted device. This is in line with guidance sought from a leading information security partner on the serious information risks associated with running applications on a rooted device.

by D####:

Use an android phone - huwawei . The app is a breeze to use to record CPD activities. But failed to send cpd as CSV or excel file! So unfortunately, the purpose of app was not served.

W70%
by W####:

Recently found that app is using a lot of background data (almost 900mb in last 28 days). Why is that?

Z70%
by Z####:

Didnt let me upload my CPD after i had typed it all in

A70%
by A####:

It needs to have a desktop app too- the mobile app is good on the go, but it would be easier to enter and link and review CPD activities on a desktop.

R70%
by R####:

Lets me record activity whenever and wherever I am

J70%
by J####:

Needs a desktop link to edit and rest data

C70%
by C####:

This is a brilliant app. Surprised by the poor reviews which I put down mainly to frustrated users of rooted devices (and the GMC makes a good case for not allowing it to work) and a hypercritical medical profession I know only too well. It allows quick-fire recording of reflective practice we all engage in but can't make time to sit at a desk, log in, etc Don't have to worry about my appraisal anymore. Second best work-related app after NICE BNF. Thank you GMC!

D70%
by D####:

Useless on my rooted device. The GMC say this is for security reasons. No patient-identifiable data should be present in the appraisal record however it is stored so (unless for some unknown reason there is other 3rd party information being used by the app) I don't see why I can't be treated as an adult and allowed to decide whether to take the chance of someone getting to see my appraisal info. Quite honestly anyone is welcome to see mine. We believe in patient choice - how about giving doctors a choice?

C70%
by C####:

This app is really useful but desperately needs a desktop companion as typing reflections is much easier with a proper keyboard and screen than on a mobile device. I am sure I'm not the only one who uses this to quickly log an activity in real time but then reflects later on.

E70%
by E####:

App has the odd crash and can have trouble when using two devices. It would be useful if there was a web interface to make it possible to add items when on a desktop/laptop and even better would be if there was a QR code associated with a journal article that could be scanned to add the article to the database.

Does not work with rooted devices for some reason

A70%
by A####:

Unfortunately can't give zero stars as doesn't work. Surely all data stored by app will only be relevant to user so what extra risk posed by root ? Root users are likely to understand mobile security.

Junior doctors strikes

U70%

V70%
by V####:

I like the app! Cross platform and a really comprehensive approach. I don't understand why they've restricted root users from using it?

D70%
by D####:

Will not work on my rooted phone. Disappointed.

W70%
by W####:

In principle a GMC sanctioned app is a no brainer. However, I would not recommend it. It does not left me try to entry stuff Offline, it is trying to link to the account. I have reverted to the tried and tested Evernote. 1Star for now. Maybe future iterations will improve...

Z70%
by Z####:

Says device is rooted, while its not

A70%

Does not support rooted devices. This makes it useless for me

R70%

App won't even run because phone is rooted. #Fail

J70%

Doesn't work

Y70%
by Y####:

Despite your security advisers recommending the app should not work on rooted devices, it sounds like many healthcare professionals use rooted devices, making your app unfortunately worthless to many of us.

C70%
by C####:

Looks good but when I try to register to use it, it returns an error, stating a problem with connectivity (although there is no problem with connectivity on any other app) therefore I cannot use it. Contacted them about it but after a couple of email exchanges, they stopped replying. Shame, as I would really like to give it a go.

E70%
by E####:

Is there not an alternative means of protecting the data? Encryption / password etc. Have alienated a lot of people by not allowing on rooted devices.

by M####:

Great app - pretty intuitive, visually appealing, perfect for recording learning on the go, really easy to export entries... BUT the Colleges (RCP in my case) need to allow importing of entries into their CPD diaries (I got round the problem by uploading the exported .pdf and .csv into my ePortfolio - PYA tomorrow: wish me luck!)

B70%
by B####:

No more dogeared certificates! Store all your cpd and reflect as and when you can, in the sane way you keep a logbook.

Q70%
by Q####:

Along with many other people's comments - I think you need to rethink the security aspects of not running on any rooted device based on the number of comments here.

G70%
by G####:

This is a great app that let's you log your clinical progression as well as keep up to date with key ethical and clinical hot topics. Would definitely recommend it.

S70%
by S####:

Unfortunately I require root access, and for some unknown reason the app is restricted not to work with root. Utterly useless to me and many others now.

L70%

Not working on rooted device! Excellent in principle just wish I could use it.

T70%

Won't work on my rooted phone so can't review it
