The field of occupational medicine is always evolving, which can make it difficult for professionals to stay abreast of the latest developments.
However, many medical bodies, including the General Medical Council, require medical professionals to keep their knowledge and skills up to date throughout their career to maintain and improve performance.
Our Occupational Medicine CPD online subscription scheme makes it easy for you to ensure your practice remains up to date and gives you the means to meet appraisal and revalidation requirements while paving the way for future career opportunities.
Our subscription scheme can currently be accessed by University of Manchester alumni students only and provides a wealth of membership benefits, including:
- access to high-quality, specialist knowledge and resources as delivered by our Occupational Medicine MSc;
- flexible access through our e-learning platform;
- access to webinars and articles on key issues and topic areas suggested by members;
- membership of a community forum to discuss issues and connect with other members;
- advice and support from leaders in the field of occupational medicine;

What will the materials cover?
Subscribers will be given online access to up-to-date specialist knowledge and resources required by medical practitioners working in the field of occupational medicine, allowing you to apply the knowledge to your day-to-day work.
