Moving to Ireland as a General Practitioner? The first thing you will need to do in order to practise is register with the Irish Medical Council (IMC). Below we've outlined how to go about this in an easy step-by-step process.
This blog post is specifically for those who completed their medical degree within an EU member state. For doctors who received their qualification outside of the EU, you can read about the process in our other blog post here.
Create an account online with the Irish Medical Council (IMC).
You can do this here.
Submit an application form.
Gather required documentation if you apply as a Specialist:
* Notarised/Attested copies must be stamped and signed by one of the following: A
Notary public, Justice of the Peace, Commissioner for Oaths or if in Ireland a Member
of An Garda Siochana. We will also accept an Apostille. The Medical Council will not
accept documents stamped and signed by anyone else.
Documents must be sent via post, we will not accept documents via email.

Application Fee General €410, Specialist €640
We would always suggest specialist registration for GP roles in Ireland
A reference number will be provided by email as the Medical Council assess and verify your documentation with other bodies and institutions. The Medical Council will then make a decision on your application.
It is usually recommended that you would have full registration before applying for roles in Ireland. However we are here to support you throughout the process. We can sometimes apply for roles during the last stage of registration. It all depends on your personal circumstances.
Currently we have a few permanent roles available - you can see our new roles below.
...and many more!
