International Clinical Fellowship Programme

The Irish College of General Practitioners Clinical Fellowship Programme (ICGP-CFP) provides a route for overseas doctors wishing to undergo structured and advanced postgraduate medical training in Ireland. The ICGP-CFP enables suitably qualified overseas postgraduate medical Clinical Fellowship Doctors to undertake a fixed period of active training in clinical services in Ireland. The programme is normally offered over one or two years of clinical training, after which the overseas doctors will be required to return to their country of origin. In limited certain circumstances, the period of training may extend to three years.

The purpose of the ICGP-CFP is to enable overseas Clinical Fellowship Doctors to gain access to structured training and in active clinical environments that they cannot get in their own country, with a view to enhancing and improving the individual's medical training and learning, to become Clinical leaders in their chosen career pathway in their home country, and, in the medium to long term, the health services in their own countries.

This Programme will allow participants to access a structured period of training and experience as developed by the ICGP to specifically meet the clinical needs of participants as defined by their home country's health service.
