Professional Competence is a formal way of recording your lifelong learning as a doctor and highlighting your dedication to developing and maintaining key skills and competencies throughout your medical career. 


If you hold Specialist, General or Supervised registration with the Irish Medical Council, you are required by law to maintain your professional competence and enrol on a Professional Competence Scheme operated by a Postgraduate Medical Training Body relevant to your scope of practice.
