In order to comply with the requirements of the Professional Competence Scheme for the year 1st May 2022 - 30th April 2023 as mandated by the Medical Council, doctors are expected to undertake and record the following activity:
- 25 CPD credits (in any category: External, Internal, Personal Learning, Research or Teaching); and
- One Clinical / Practice Audit
RCSI continue to encourage you to take a broader approach, where it is possible to do so, to ensure you participate in at least 20 hours of external activities, 20 hours of hospital based events and record your personal learning.
We wish to highlight that the PCS portal has not been updated / changed to reflect the above PCS interim requirements and therefore when you record the minimum requirement (25 cpd credits) and complete one clinical / practice Audit for this PCS year, your portfolio will indicate that you are ‘not on target’. However, please note that by recording 25 CPD credits and one clinical /practice Audit you are ON TARGET with interim requirements for this PCS year.
If you require further advice on the operation of the Professional Competence Scheme or support in meeting the requirements, please contact us at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or consult our website.
