2018 PMI Award for Project Excellence Europe, Middle East, Africa Region Winner: The National Training Programme for Emergency Medicine in Ireland

Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland aimed to make its training more efficient and effective. 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 get trainer buy-in. The team closed the project on time and on budget. Within months, 100 percent of the trainers were using the new system.
