Understand the Certification:

What is it?
The Professional Update Certificate (CAP) is a standardized document issued by the Brazilian Medical Association, which certifies the doctor's new knowledge, enabling him to practice his specialty. Its validity is five years.

Who participates?
All doctors who have obtained a Specialist Title or Certificate in Area of Practice.

As the professional updating process promoted by the Brazilian Medical Association began in January 2006, the first CAPs were issued in December/2012, valid for five years.

To obtain the CAP, the specialist doctor must accumulate 100 points over five years, participating in different updating activities, duly accredited by the National Accreditation Commission. For certification purposes, only a maximum of 40 points per year will be considered.

Specialty Associations must provide doctors with a minimum of 40 credits each year, 20 of which refer to activities of a regional or state nature. In addition, they must provide a minimum of 10 annual credits corresponding to distance learning programs (online or printed), which is equivalent to 20 class hours.

Continuing medical education programs are, worldwide, mandatory practices for updating professionals, maintaining their scientific skills. The specialist who obtains the CAP will be more valued by their patients and in the job market, as they will be able to demonstrate their constant improvement in the face of the evolution of medicine.
