Continuing Professional Development refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that one gains in their career after the initial training. There is no structured and uniform way of assessing and documenting ones progress professionally in our country. Every medical teacher wishes to perfect him/herself. They do so at their own pace by identifying the resources available and time permissible.
