What you need to work as a Medical Doctor Ireland

Posted on Saturday, January 12, 2019 by EXEC DoctorsNo comments

Working as a Doctor in Ireland 

The very first thing you need to know is that you must be registered with the Irish Medical Council to practice medicine in Ireland. No other medical certification has validity in Ireland - other registrations (eg GMC registration etc) are invalid.

It is a legal offence to practise within the State of Ireland while unregistered, with the exception of administering first aid or visiting European Economic Area (EEA) registered doctors attending in an emergency.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your registration is current and appropriate for your individual circumstances within one of these categories:

  • Trainee Specialist Division
  • Internship Registration
  • Specialist Division
  • General Division
  • Supervised Division
  • Visiting EEA Practitioners Division

It is important that the IMC always has the correct contact details for you, and you can check this on the IMC website.

Professional Indemnity Insurance

Employers require registered doctors to hold professional indemnity insurance for private work. All doctors must ensure they have adequate professional indemnity cover prior to engaging in the practice of medicine within the State of Ireland.
