There are different routes to apply for registration with the Medical Council depending on where you trained and gained your experience.

General Registration

Doctors trained outside of the EU/EEA

If you have trained outside of the EU or EEA, you will need to have your medical education credentials verified through the Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPIC) before you can apply for registration with the Medical Council. EPIC is hosted by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). You can learn more about how to use EPIC on the EPIC website.

There are 3 sub-routes in which you can apply for General registration as a Non-EU applicant:
