Specialist Division of the Register
To have your name listed on the Irish Medical Council Specialist Division of the Register (SDR), a doctor must apply directly to the Irish Medical Council (IMC). There are various routes available to doctors who wish to be included on the Specialist Register, as outlined on the IMC website.
A Specialist is a doctor who has completed his/her training and requires no further training or supervision to practice independently in the specialty of his/her choice. There are various routes to achieving inclusion on the SDR; details are available on the Irish Medical Council Website.
The Postgraduate Training Body (PGTB) is not in any way responsible for who does or does not get admitted to the Specialist Division of the Irish Medical Council Register.
