You only need to record five hours of Personal Learning each year, but one of the most common mistakes we see is doctors forgetting to record it.


Here are some everyday examples of Personal Learning

  • Journal or text book reading (online or printed), e.g. Irish Journal of Medical Science, BMJ, Cochrane Library, NEJM, The Lancet etc. as well as study towards an examination such as MRCPI or a Masters
  • Preparation for committee meetings, workshops or workgroups
  • Informal discussion relating to CPD with a friend or colleague
  • Viewing recorded lectures
