A doctor wishing to practise medicine in the Republic of Ireland must register with the Irish Medical Council (IMC).
It is an offence to practise within the state while unregistered, with the exception of administering first aid or visiting European Economic Area (EEA) registered doctors attending in an emergency.
Every doctor is responsible for ensuring that their registration is current and appropriate for their individual circumstances. Please visit the IMC website for full details.
TTM Healthcare will be happy to help you with any registration queries you may have. Contact the TTM Doctors’ Team on 01 297 0427 or 065 6896238 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Medical Council’s Register consists of four divisions:
A doctor undertaking postgraduate medical training in a recognised training post must be registered in the TSD. This division also includes interns.
Irish Medical Council specialist registration is specifically for doctors who have completed specialist training recognised by the Council and who may practise independently as a specialist. A number of eligibility categories are available for registration within the Specialist Division of the Register. Read more about eligibility and the Specialist Division here.
Doctors who do not practise in individually numbered, identifiable training posts, who have not been proposed for a post in the Supervised Division, and who have not completed recognised specialist medical training must register under General Registration. Visit the IMC website for more information.
EU citizens who are fully established to practise medicine in another EU member state may practise medicine in Ireland on a temporary and occasional basis without having to take out specialist or general registration. Doctors should apply at least one month in advance of providing a service.
Get more information here.
