The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland is researching the existence and extent of defensive medical practices among Irish surgeons. To this effect, we ask that you complete a 10-minute-long, anonymous survey about surgical practice in Ireland.
We wish to advise you that the Professional Competence "Statement of Participation" for those enrolled in the 2017 - 2018 term is now available to download from your PCS Portfolio (http://pcs.rcsi.ie).
Many of you will already have renewed your enrolment for 2018 – 2019. For those of you who have still to enrol, please be advised that you must be enrolled in a Professional Competence Scheme (PCS) and be able to confirm at retention of your registration with the Medical Council that you are enrolled and complying with the requirements of a PCS.
The Medical Education Unit in UCC is leading on a Health Research Board funded project, supported by the Postgraduate Training Bodies and Medical Council, which entails a short survey seeking doctor’s attitudes and experiences of participating in the maintenance of professional competence.
