As we now approach the end of the Professional Competence Scheme year 2021 – 2022, we recommend that you update your ePortfolio to ensure that your CPD activity is uploaded for the current year 1st May 2021 – 30th April 2022. LOGIN to upload your CPD activity
You will be aware from previous circulations that the PCS requirements were adjusted to reflect the current situation in Ireland. Please see outlined below the PCS requirements for PCS Year 1st May 2021 – 30th April 2022.
- All enrolled doctors are required to engage in and record a minimum of 25 CPD credits across ANY credit categories (external, internal, personal, research/teaching). CPD targets for each category will not apply for 2021/22.
- Complete one clinical / practice audit
Doctors will need to confirm that they have met / not met these requirements when completing their annual Medical Council retention of registration in May/June 2022.
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 one clinical / practice Audit for this current 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.
