Additional Information for Medicine Offer Holders

The following information is intended for current UCD Medicine Offer Holders.

Irish Medical degrees are registrable in Ireland and recognised internationally. Internship posts in Ireland for non-EU graduates cannot be guaranteed as the number and funding of intern posts is determined by the Irish health service and is not within the jurisdiction of Medical Schools in Ireland.

This does not affect US/Canadian graduates who normally return to North America immediately after their graduation to start their residencies.

All other non-EU citizens should check with the relevant medical licensing authorities to ensure that you are aware of the licensing requirements for graduates of Irish medical schools who wish to return to their home country to practice.

Garda Vetting

Garda Vetting 

University College Dublin operates a Student Garda Vetting Policy which applies to students in a number of educational programmes involving placements which will bring them into contact with children and vulnerable persons and in which they will assume positions of trust. To ensure the protection of children and vulnerable persons, and justify public trust and confidence, the University is committed to ensuring that only suitable candidates are allowed to undertake these programmes and begin their relevant placements. 

Please be advised of the Police Certificate requirement which applies to those who have resided outside of Ireland for a period greater than 6 months, since the age of 18 years.
Where applicable, you should immediately begin the process of applying for any Police Certificate(s) since you will not be deemed fully vetted until such time as all documents have been received. This is of urgent importance as you cannot attend your placement without Vetting clearance.
