VERIFICATION OF ACTIVITIES RECORDED PCS Year 1 May 2020 – 30 April 2021
Please be aware that as part of the Arrangement with the Medical Council, the Training Bodies are required to undertake a verification of activities recorded by 3-5% of doctors enrolled on the Professional Competence Scheme. RCSI will commence this Verification Process in May / June 2021 where we will randomly select doctors to participate in this process for the year 1st May 2020 – 30th April 2021. This process will involve checking the activities that have been uploaded to a doctor’s PCS portfolio and the CPD credits assigned to each activity. This is a supportive exercise and provides support to assist doctors in meeting the PCS requirements.
The Medical Council have indicated that doctors will be asked to make a declaration about their maintenance of professional competence during the July 2021 annual retention process.
