It is not necessary for a hospital or department to apply for recognition of internal credits for meetings such as MDMs etc. A record should be maintained of the activity / meeting for which internal credits are being claimed and a log of those attending will also need to be retained for 5 years. A sample certificate is available to download – this should be printed on paper with the logo of the hospital/department:
Internal meetings CPD attendance cert
Please note that the the Faculty of Radiologists and Radiation Oncologists allocates credits for External Meetings held in Ireland only. Where external credits are awarded for professional development activities outside of Ireland, a certificate of attendance with identified awarding body should be retained. If you are hosting an event that is held annually, you must apply for accreditation each time it takes place – CPD approval cannot be carried forward. Similarly if you are applying for accreditation for events that are held on a regular basis, i.e. monthly, you must apply providing all dates for the event.
To apply for credits for an event, please use the form below. Further information on CPD credits for events are available in the guidelines below. Applications must be made at least 4 weeks in advance of the event taking place.
