The ICGP is the body responsible for recognising educational events/activities for general practitioners for purposes of external continuing professional development (CPD) and GMS study leave.
To apply for recognition of educational events/activities for external CPD, please do the following:
Refer to the guidelines and sponsorship policy, available in the documentation section.
Complete an application form at least four weeks prior to your event.
Please note: We do not accept applications for events that have already occurred.
Valid applications are usually processed within a 2-4 week timeframe and confirmation is then issued by email. Applications requiring further details and possibly a review by the medical director and/or the Professional Competence Committee may take considerably longer.
Should you require clarification, or further information in respect of CPD recognition, please email your query to CPDRecognition@icgp.ie.
