Courses that are free of charge for doctors enrolled on the CPD-SS
We offer a wide range of courses and events that are free of charge for doctors enrolled on the Continuous Professional Development Support Scheme (CPD-SS).
The CPD-SS is an educational programme open to all NCHDs working in the public health service who
are in non-training posts
hold a 2010 NCHD contract with the HSE
and are registered on a Professional Competence Scheme.
Doctors on the CPD-SS get free access to training and educational activities worth up to 20 external CPD credits or totalling three days per year, whichever is greatest. The deadline to enrol on the Scheme was 30 September 2019.
This two-day course introduces you to essential management concepts. You will learn about aspects of general management, such as time management and meeting planning, not ordinarily taught to clinicians.
This Ethics Foundation course is available for all NCHDs. The course certificate is recognised as equivalent to the HST mandatory Ethics Foundation course for those applying for the Specialist Division Register (SDR).
