IAPD Fellowship | Applications Close on
31 March 2023

The online exam will take place on the 25th of April 2023!

It is open to IAPD members in good standing and will be designed to test knowledge, and as such forms part of the overall assessment of training.

If you have any questions about the new exam, we would be happy to answer them, please email: [email protected]

On 22 January 2023 the IAPD hosted an information session about the fellowship, follow the link below to watch the webinar.

Are you ready to apply for the IAPD Fellowship, but have too few CE credits?

IAPD Fellowship applicants are required to have accumulated at least 16 CE credits during the last 24 months. 

To support those in need of a few more hours, IAPD created a special feature in the IAPD Video Lecture Centre: IAPD members in good standing can now earn CE credits by accessing the IAPD Video Lecture Centre. After watching recent IAPD lectures from the video library, downloadable e-certificates will be available.

If you have questions, contact us at [email protected] today.

2022 Consensus Recommendations

Understanding the Quality of Evidence  Indicators and Global Agreement Associated  with IAPD Recommendations. Consensus-based Statements rely on evidence from expert opinion of the IAPD Science Committee or other expert opinion documents, such as AAPD Best Practices documents. Consensus-based Recommendations rely on published high-quality evidence such as clinical trials, or meta analyses of clinical trials.

Each IAPD Consensus-based Recommendation or Statement was evaluated to determine applicability to global clinical practices. Seventy-nine IAPD members, distributed internationally, reviewed the guidelines and rated the recommendations using a 9-point Likert Scale, from strongly disagree to strongly agree. The average number of evaluators for each recommendation was 23.
