The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) has been awarded a prestigious Global PMI Award for Project Excellence for their National Emergency Programme.
The RCSI team was put forward for the global award after winning at the Ireland Chapter of PMI National Project Awards last year in the Private Sector Project of the Year category.
Congratulating the RCSI team on their win at the 2018 PMI Global Conference in Los Angeles last week, Pat Lucey, Ireland Chapter of PMI President said: “The global awards recognise exceptional projects making positive impacts. The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland was a worthy winner at our awards last November, and for them to go on and win globally is a fantastic achievement.”
The RCSI project team developed an innovative multi-faceted system to manage the National Training Programme for emergency medicine trainings, from the point of application entry through to clinical rotation and assessment.
In Ireland, it launched an online portal in 2017, allowing trainers to visually track physicians’ progress across 36 key medical competencies, and offer targeted guidance if necessary. User-testing and real-time simulations helped the project team achieve trainer buy-in. The team closed the project on time and on budget and within months, 100% of the trainers were using the new system.

The awards, sponsored by PwC, recognise and honour individuals, project teams and organisations that have excelled within the project management discipline. They take place at the offices of PwC, Spencer Dock, Dublin 1 on 29 November.
