Michael Horgan, Chairman, Health & Safety Authority and Governor and Honorary Secretary, Rotunda Hospital, receives Chartered Director designation

Michael Horgan, Chairman of the Health & Safety Authority and Governor and Honorary Secretary of the Rotunda Hospital, has recently obtained designation as a Chartered Director, having successfully completed the Institute of Directors in Ireland (IoD) Chartered Director Programme.

Over 470 participants have undertaken the Chartered Director Programme to date, which is now in its sixth year in Ireland, and having obtained his Certificate and Diploma in Company Direction, Michael went on to become a fully accredited Chartered Director.

Michael, who holds a BSc in Computer Science, an MA from the University of Dublin (Trinity College) and an MA in Industrial Engineering from UCD, is former Chief Executive of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. In 1999, in his role as Deputy Chief Executive of the RCSI, Michael proposed the development of an online surgical training programme, which has evolved to become Basic electronic Surgical Training (BeST), an online instruction programme for surgeons in training, which led to a joint venture being established between RCSI and Harvard Medical School.

Over his career, Michael has developed significant relationships throughout the Middle East and Far East, especially in Bahrain, where he was awarded the Order of Bahrain First Class, by the King of Bahrain in 2006. Michael was also conferred with Honorary Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 2009.

Michael is Chairman of InterPay, the regulated entity of the Taxback Group, a non-executive director of eLearning company, Intuition, and was previously a member of the Senate of the National University of Ireland and a member of the board of Beaumont Hospital.
