International Training Opportunities

We offer International Medical Graduate Training Programmes

Ireland has a proud tradition of providing world-class postgraduate specialist training opportunities to doctors around the world.

The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland has, in collaboration with the Health Services Executive of Ireland, developed two training programmes designed specifically to meet the needs of international medical graduates:

  • International¬†Residency Programme
  • International Clinical Fellowship Programme

Both training programmes satisfy fully the high standards of training required of all programmes of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and its Faculties and Institute.

Our postgraduate specialist training programmes are designed to produce skilled, confident doctors who can provide world-class medical care and handle the everyday challenges of a busy health service.
