Webcasts are free video recordings of lectures (including lecture slides) from selected RCoA Events.  To assist with your revalidation needs, you can record CPD credits for viewing RCoA Webcasts.

The RCoA uses a webcasting platform to provide a range of the College’s educational programme:

  • Free access to webcasts of selected lectures.
  • No need for login details.
  • Earn CPD credits by viewing webcasts.
  • Highlighted CPD webcast of the month.
  • Watch at a time that suits you.

The opinions and views expressed in the webcasts are those of the speakers and not the College’s. The College has a new webcasting platform to supplement our growing online educational resources.  This new technology, provided by market leader, Mediasite, enables users to access a broader range of the College’s excellent educational programme by providing open and free access to selected educational meetings, events and lectures online. These taster sessions, which can be viewed on demand via PCs and MACs, will not only give you an insight into the day, but will also provide support for revalidation by easing time and financial constraints that may restrict doctor’s ability to attend events in person. The system’s Q&A facility will additionally offer the ability to review key questions and discussions generated as a result of the presentation; as well as to submit your own questions to the speaker for response.

Viewing webcasts will also provide you with an opportunity to gain some internal CPD credits.  These should be self-accredited and accompanied by documented reflective learning. Please refer to the College’s Guidelines for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for our  CPD Reflective Note Guidance Template and further information on recording CPD.
