Information for Health Professionals

Beginning in April 2025, all physician assistants in Liberia will be required to complete CPD in order to renew their license. Individual physician assistants are expected to identify their individual learning needs, complete approved CPD content, and keep a record of CPD activities and present documentation to the Board when required.

CPD is measured using Continuing Education Units (CEUs), with 1 CEU corresponding to 10 hours of active learning. All health professionals in Liberia, including physician assistants are required to complete 4 CEUs (equivalent to roughly 40 hours) every 2 years.

CEUs may be earned through a variety of CPD activities:

• Approved CPD courses offered by registered CPD providers (certificate required if over 5 hours)

• Pre-approved activities (certificate required if over 5 hours)

* Online training at the following organizations

- World Continuing Education Alliance (coming soon)
- World Health Organization
- Medscape
- U.S. Centers for Disease Control
- Global Health E-Learning Center


o Attending a national or regional scientific conference

• Pre-approved activities for pre-determined CEUs
o This includes attending clinical meetings such as grand rounds, conducting research, participating in policy development, serving as a preceptor, and participating other in-service training. For guidance on how to count and track CEUs for these activities, see the National Guidelines for CPD.
