Bologna Health Jobs  is one of the very few agencies in Ireland that will actually help you with the registration process with the Irish Medical Council in Ireland.

Who can we help: although we would like to help all our doctors with this procedure we can ONLY help those that are qualified as a doctor and/or as a specialialist inside the European Union (EU) regardless of the country of Citizenship of the doctor.

So lets have a look at the registration process with the IMC:

 

- EVERY DOCTOR NEEDS TO REGISTRAR WITH THE IMC BEFORE HE STARTS WORKING IN IRELAND.

 

- IN THE MAJORITY OF CASES YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO DO THIS BEFORE YOU CAN APPLY FOR AN INTERVIEW!

 

THERE ARE BASICALLY 2 TYPES OF REGISTRATIONS FOR DOCTORS WANTING TO MOVE TO IRELAND TO WORK OUTSIDE OF TRAINING POSITIONS:

 

-    GENERAL REGISTRATION: Suitable for NCHDs POSITIONS (Registrar and SHO type of positions).This does NOT mean you will not practice inside your field of expertise or specialty it only means your grade would be similar to a resident but  with a higher salary.

 

-   SPECIALIST REGISTRATION: Suitable for CONSULTANT POSITIONS.

 

Note: It is important to choose the right type of Registration from the very beginning otherwise the application may get delayed!

 

 

FAQ (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT REGISTRATION):

 

1.  How long does it take?

 

More or less you can count at least 3-4 months to get registered from the time you start the process collecting papers until you finally get registered.

 

2.   How much does it cost (EU qualified or validated doctors)?

 

-General Registration is 410€ in order for the IMC to go through your papers (“Assessment Fee”) and 560€ for the annual quota from the 1st of July one year to the 30th of June of the following. The total is therefore more or less 1000€. The annual quota fee is reduced if you registrar as from the 1st of January until the 30th of April to 280€ (“Retention fee”).
 
-Specialist Registration is 640€ for the assessment fee (one of fee) and 560€ for the annual quota. “Retention fee” of 305€ in this case.
 
- Transfer fee: this is the fee that will be charged if you transfer from the General Division to the Specialist Division. At the moment this cost is of 230€.
 

3.  What papers do you need to submit in order to get registered?

 

- General Registration (EU qualified doctors):

 

· Completed online application. 

 

· Notarised attested copy of current passport.

 

· Notarised attested copy of basic medical qualification.

 

· Notarised/attested copy of Conformity Certificate (If you began your BMQ before your country joined the EU).

 

· Notarised/attested copy of Certificate to accompany your qualification (you will need it depending on the country where you qualified as a doctor). It usually has to do with the your intern year. If your medical degree was done in 6 years it is usually not necessary. 

 

· Good standing Certificate. To be sent directly by all the Medical Councils where you have been registered in the last 5 years. Even if you were not currently practicing as a doctor in that jurisdiction. This is important as a lot of doctors have practiced in diferent jurisdictions in the last 5 years so in this case you need to send a GSC from EACH country where you have been registered.

 

 

- Specialist Registration (EU qualified doctors):

 

· Completed online application.

 

· Notarised attested copy of current passport.

 

· Notarised attested copy of basic medical qualification.

 

· Notarised/attested copy  of CCST (Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training). The automatic validation of your specialist degree depends on the country and specialty where you qualified as a Specialist.

 

· Notarised/attested copy of Conformity Certificate saying your CCST is in accordance with UE legislation (basically 2005/35/EC Directive). Only required if the CCST does NOT say anything about this which is usually the case.

 

· Good standing Certificate. To be sent directly by all the Medical Councils where you have been registered in the last 5 years. Even if you were not currently practicing as a doctor in that jurisdiction.

 

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:

 

-Non EU qualified doctors that validated there degree (BMQ or CCST) in a member state will also be able to get registered in Ireland if they provide the following: A Notarised attested copy of first time recognition in an EU member state, treated like a specialist within the meaning of 2005/36/EC AND Evidence of 3 years professional experience on the specialty concerned in the member state that first granted recognition.
 
-Non EU/EU qualified doctors that didn’t and/or can’t validate there title in Ireland automatically. Will have to have there application assessed by the IMC and the Royal college concerned. This may be very long (1 year or more) process which in the majority of cases needs of a Medical Examination called the PRES examination and/or extra recognised training.
 
-PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL PAPERS SENT TO THE IMC THAT ARE NOT IN ENGLISH NEED AN OFICIAL TRANSLATION TO ENGLISH LANGUAGE BY A RECOGNISED OFICIAL TRANSLATOR.
 
-PLEASE NOTE IT IS VERY ADVISABLE TO HAVE SOMEONE GO THROUGH YOUR PAPERS BEFORE YOU SUBMIT THEM TO THE IMC TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE CORRECT AND COMPLETE. BHJ IS ONE OF THE VERY FEW AGENCIES THAT DOES THIS.
