The MyCPD portal is Specsavers’ virtual hub for optometrists that hosts live tracking of CPD points or credits and is home to a wide range of professional development resources and training.

Currently, there are more than 26 CPD courses on the portal, offering 52 self-accredited CPD points for Australian optometrists and 12.6 credits for New Zealand optometrists.

More than 500 optometrists have already accessed the MyCPD portal since it launched in February. So, what are the optometrists of Australia and New Zealand most interested in?

According to MyCPD data, OCT is the most popular topic currently on the portal, with four of the five most accessed courses related to the technology and how to use it.

This includes the courses: Essentials of OCT, Prudent Referrals with OCT, OCT and Medical Retina and, OCT and Glaucoma: Case studies. The other course rounding out the top five is The Ageing Retina.

In addition to CPD-accredited courses, the MyCPD Portal also houses links and resources for more than 400 resources and CPD training programs from recognised institutions including NZODOB, MiVision, ACO, Centre for Eye Health and BHV Education.

You can access the MyCPD portal through the tab at the top of Specsavers’ ProFile website or by clicking here.
