The ASMIRT Continuing Professional Development Program


The Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program is recognised by ASMIRT members and other stakeholders as a professional development program of significance. 

Since its inception in 1999, CPD has helped to benefit practitioners, their patients and the public through a better educated, better trained and more proficient workforce.

The ASMIRT CPD Program is a high quality program which offers flexibility and a wide range of educational activities to meet the diverse interests and needs of the Medical Radiation Sciences (MRS) profession. This Program also meets the CPD standards required for registration as a Medical Radiation practitioner as mandated under the National Law.

Since the introduction of this CPD Program, significant contributions have been made to documenting the knowledge and skills used by Medical Radiation Science practitioners. The development of new skills and the advancement in clinical practice, supported by the self-reflection of workplace experiences, are key to the attainment of full professionalism.

The Program continues to build on the sound educational principles that individuals learn best when the learner is motivated, and when the learning:

  • is highly self-directed;
  • is related to the learner’s identified needs;
  • builds on existing knowledge and experience;
  • encourages active participation;
  • associates learning with current practice; and
  • involves reflection and evaluation of the learning


There are many ways to gain CPD credits.
