For further details, please contact: Ms Annemarie Creighton, Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine, RCSI House, 121 St Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2. Tel: 01- 402 2382 – e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Phase 2 of the website launched in March 2021, with the on-line move of the FSEM CRM.  All Fellows, Members and Associate Members will be given login details by the FSEM office in due course, and will now be able to access the private part of the website to pay their subscription fees on-line, download receipts, and access various benefits linked to their FSEM subscriptions. Later this summer, Fellows and Members will also be able to register for CPD events on-line through their profile (as opposed to the FSEM website homepage) and keep a record of all CPD activities they have registered for through the Faculty; CPD certificates will also be automatically generated by the on-line platform for CPD events they have attended, and a record will be kept in their profile. A number of additional benefits will be added to the platform over time.

The FSEM webinars launched last summer in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.  This initiative was aimed to assist both our Fellows and Members, as well as our registered medical practitioners on the PCS in SEM, to meet their CPD requirements with the Medical Council, as all face-to-face CPD meetings had been cancelled for the foreseable future. Those webinars have proven very popular and we are delighted with the response we have received so far from delegates.  We are planning more webinars for the next 12 months, and further details will be made available on the website on the webinars page.

The end of the PCS year 2020/2021 is fast approaching. Please remember to re-enrol if you have not done so already before 30th April 2021, and upload your CPD activity on the PCS portal. The new PCS year will start on 1st May 2021, and the PCS portal will be ready for re-enrolment from Monday 3rd May 2021 onwards.
