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
