The Trainees joined programmes in Basic Specialist Training, Higher Specialist Training, International Clinical Fellowship Programme, College of Physicians and Surgeons Pakistan (CPSP) Postgraduate Scholarship Programme, and the Sudanese Medical Specialisation Board training programme.
At this year’s induction days, Professor Mary Horgan welcomed all doctors commencing or continuing their medical education in the College,
Whether you are commencing your specialist training or continuing onto higher specialist training, it is a very important milestone in your medical career. We look forward to supporting you and nurturing you throughout your training with RCPI. This is your College and the College is your voice so it is important that you become involved in College life. Our training site offices in Limerick, Galway and Cork also provide local supports for our trainees who are based in regional hospitals. It is very important for us that our trainees are supported locally, where they are training. They also provide a direct link between the training site and the RCPI offices in Dublin. Plans are in place to expand our regional offices- the next is due to open later this year and will support our doctors working across the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group and will be based between Tallaght and St James's Hospitals.
