Typical Educational Activities that attract External CPD include:

  • scientific meetings
  • specialty relevant courses
  • workshops
  • seminars


While many approved events focus on medical/clinical topics, we also approve events focusing on non-medical topics such as medico-legal, risk management, leadership, quality improvement, patient safety and personal development.


At least one person on the organising faculty for your event must be a doctor who holds Specialist Registration with the Irish Medical Council. 


This person's details must be entered in the "Medical Organiser" section of your application form, and you must submit a Medical Organiser Declaration with your application.
