    What kind of IMG are you... EU school, or non-EU school? It matters.

    I have heard different things about whether or not it is possible, but without an EU diploma it appears that the cards are stacked against you. It apparently takes forever for non-EU medical credentials to be verified, and nothing is guaranteed in that regard.

    Im a non-EU graduate. (carribean actually) US citizen. ECFMg certified etc etc. Any idea what the process entails? any exams ( PLABs or whatever) required? Any US citizen non-EU grads out there doing this? yes ive heard it does take a while, but does it eventually happen?
    thanks!

    PLAB is a UK requirement, so that would apply only for Northern Ireland. Republic of Ireland is EU, on the other hand, so they have different rules and requirements. Your ECFMG status makes no major difference in this regard, because it's purely an American certification. I think that the PRES would be a requirement for you, actually, but I'm not sure what that entails.

    Being a non-EU graduate/citizen doesn't help your cause, and unfortunately the Carib schools in general are not broadly accepted in the EU (I believe there may be a couple of exceptions, but I'm not well-versed on that since I'm not studying in the Carib... it probably depends a lot on which school you attended). However, you would definitely be a "Category 4" (out of 4) applicant.

    Nevertheless, I would recommend contacting an Irish medical recruiting agency (such as A-Team, Locumotion, etc.) as well as the Irish General Medical Council to see if anything can be arranged for a motivated Carib grad. Good luck to you!
