Medical Council Website Nominated for an Eircom Spider Award


Now in its 19th year, the Eircom Spider awards was held on November 20th and acknowledge excellence in online communications. The Medical Council’s education area was shortlisted in the User Experience category, acknowledging its design and usability across traditional desktop and mobile devices. The overall award for user experience went to Appleberry Press.

The new education area of the website was launched in early 2014 and acts as an information hub on all aspects of medical education and training, providing signposts to medical schools and training bodies, as well as important information on good professional practice. The site has been positively received by its target audience, with high levels of engagement with the information provided.

It’s a priority for the Council to improve its online communications, and we will continue to develop and maintain the high standards as acknowledged by this nomination, to provide a user friendly experience for website visitors.
