Applying for temporary registration

Individual doctors should contact the medical council to assess their eligibility for registration.

Most of the overseas doctors apply for "Temporary Registration" and this process is outlined in the subsequent sections.

Most of the information are obtained from the Irish Medical Council publications.

What is Temporary registration?

Temporary Registration is defined as the form of registration that enables a doctor to practice medicine legally in an approved hospital so that he/she may return to his/her country of origin with a higher degree of competence to assume clinical responsibility for the clinical care of patients and with a measure of knowledge to ensure the high standards of the medical profession are upheld.
Temporary Registration may be given to cater for service appointments which arise in approved hospitals where vacancies occur.
How long is it valid?

Temporary Registration is granted for a total aggregate period of seven years and is not extended under any circumstances.

Doctors holding an acceptable primary medical qualification awarded following an examination for that qualification.
The Medical Council maintains a list of primary medical qualifications which will be accepted for the purposes of admitting an applicant for temporary registration to the Assessment Scheme.
Doctors who have completed an acceptable internship equivalent to six months experience in medicine in general and six months experience in surgery in general.
Doctors who possess the requisite knowledge and skill for the efficient practice of medicine.
Doctors of good character.
The Medical Council will not accept that any doctor possesses the requisite knowledge, skill and language proficiency unless he/she has passed or has been exempted from an Assessment Examination Scheme conducted by, or on behalf of, the Medical Council.

The Assessment Scheme assesses the ability of the doctor to practice as a Senior House Officer, in a safe manner, under consultant supervision.

Applying for temporary registration

Doctors who wish to apply for temporary registration must complete fully Forms TR1/TR2 and attach the relevant supporting documents. The Forms will be considered by the Medical Council and assessed as to the applicant's suitability to apply for temporary registration.
The Medical Council will determine the applicant's eligibility to sit the Assessment Scheme or to be exempted from the Assessment Scheme.
An applicant who considers he/she meets the criteria for exemption from the Assessment Scheme must specify, on the application form, the grounds on which the exemption is being sought.
All other applications will be considered for the purpose of sitting the Assessment Scheme. Applicants may be required to fulfill other conditions as specified by the Medical Council, to enable the Medical Council to make a decision in each case. Any expenses incurred by an applicant in fulfilling the Medical Council's requirements for granting temporary registration, are the responsibility of the applicant.
Applicants who fail to complete fully Forms TR1/TR2 and/or who fail to enclose the specified documents shall have their applications declared invalid by the Medical Council and the fee of IR400 pounds shall be forfeited.
Document(s) furnished in support of an application for temporary registration will be verified by the Medical Council. Where documents cannot be verified within a period of eight weeks of receipt, the application shall be declared invalid and the fee of IR400 pounds shall be forfeited.
Doctors declared eligible to sit the Assessment Scheme will be notified of the dates and locations of the assessments. Eligible candidates will be required to first sit the Assessment Scheme within a period of two years from the date of eligibility.
Doctors declared eligible to apply for temporary registration will be required, on making application for a initial period of temporary registration,
