Professional Development

All doctors are obliged to undertake continuous medical professional development during their careers. The Medical Council’s Professional Development Committee monitors and advises on training from undergraduate education right through to lifelong learning.

The Education and Training section supports the Medical Council and the Professional Development Committee in assuring the quality of medical education in Ireland - essential in ensuring patient safety and highest world standard of medical best practice - particularly important with rapidly changing scientific knowledge and increasingly sophisticated health care delivery systems.
