Applications for inclusion on the Specialist Division of the Medical Council Register, Division of Sports and Exercise Medicine, should be made directly to the Medical Council of Ireland. Please visit the Medical Council's website for the relevant application form: www.medicalcouncil.ie
Doctors who apply to have their application assessed by a recognised Training Body must meet certain criteria before the recognised training body will recommend that their name be entered onto the Specialist Division of the Register in SEM.
Competencies set out by Training Bodies typically outline in depth both the medical and non-medical competencies that a doctor needs to attain in order to meet the requirements for specialist registration. Competencies differ from entry criteria as follows: the criteria for entry set out the requirements that a doctor must have in order to be assessed by the relevant Training Body. Competencies set out the typical suite of skills that the doctor must attain in each specialty area in order to be recognised as a specialist. Applicants should ensure that they meet the criteria for Specialist Registration before applying.
