Royal College of Physicians of Ireland

Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI)

The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI) with its Faculties and Institute, provide postgraduate medical training and professional development opportunities to doctors working in 25 specialties. Collectively, we are the largest provider of postgraduate medical training in Ireland.  Our mission is to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.  We do this by training and assessing doctors and providing accredited education and professional development programmes. We also quality-assure standards in specialist medical practice and promote good health through our policy and public outreach initiatives.

Our Fellows and senior management team are heavily involved in the current transformation of the Irish health service. We work closely with the Medical Council of Ireland, the Health Service Executive, the Department of Health, and other postgraduate medical training bodies. 

We are also undergoing significant internal changes.  We are implementing a major programme of transformation that has seen the creation of new business initiatives, the internationalisation of the organisation and closer collaboration with key policy leaders in healthcare.

We are continuing to adopt a more proactive and progressive role in the Irish and international health sector, and have become a more outward-looking organisation in recent years as a result.  As new initiatives have been developed, our workforce has grown and we now employ over 90 people.  We value creativity and innovation and encourage our staff to ‘think outside the box’.

Our staff surveys consistently show that the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland is a great place to work, with a friendly, supportive atmosphere and a sense that everyone is playing their part in improving Irish healthcare.
