RCSI Professional Competence Scheme Annual Verification Process

As part of the arrangements agreed with the Medical Council, it is a requirement that each Postgraduate Training body undertake an annual verification of activities recorded by 3-5% of doctors enrolled on the professional competence scheme.   This is a separate process to the Medical Council’s maintenance of professional competence audit processes.

RCSI will shortly commence this process and randomly select doctors to participate in this verification process for the year 1st May 2012 – 30th April 2013.   This process involves checking on each of the activities that have been uploaded to a doctor’s Professional Competence Scheme (PCS) profile and the CPD credits assigned to each activity.  Certain activities require supporting documentation and, if this has not been uploaded, doctors are requested to upload (or submit) this evidence for each appropriate activity up to the minimum requirement – 50 CPD credits per year and one Clinical Audit.

This is a supportive exercise aimed to promote confidence in what doctors are recording, identify shortfalls and provide support to assist doctors in addressing shortfalls in meeting the Professional Competence Scheme requirements.
