Continuous Professional Development Support Scheme
RCSI provides a Continuous Professional Development Support Scheme (CPD-SS) to assist doctors who are not engaged in training to satisfy the requirements of the Irish Medical Council.

Supporting medical professionals
The CPD Support Scheme is an excellent tool for the training surgeon. The courses are thoughtfully organised and masterfully ministered and it provides guided learning opportunities and facilitates continuous progression.
I think the CPD Support Scheme is providing a great service to NCHDs in non-training positions in their continuous professional developing and learning skills.
