Doctors Welcome to Northern Ireland

The health and social care system in Northern Ireland offers a genuinely stimulating, challenging and rewarding next step. Whatever your area of practice and whether your interests are in leading-edge research or healthcare projects, there are real opportunities for you here - in both the short and the long term.

Our involvement in ground-breaking initiatives such as the innovative UK Precision Medicine Catapult and 100,000 Genome Project will have positive impacts for patients and practitioners alike throughout the healthcare sector here.

Furthermore, I believe that the input of practitioners from diverse backgrounds will further benefit the broad range of the services we provide, and how we provide them. You can help influence that.

Northern Ireland is a vibrant and exciting place to pursue a medical career, and I wholeheartedly encourage you to consider making our home your home. You’ll be glad you did.
