The Council also sets the standards for medical education and training in Ireland. It oversees lifelong learning and skills development throughout doctors’ professional careers through its professional competence requirements. It is charged with promoting good medical practice.

All doctors who wish to practice in the Republic of Ireland must be registered with the Irish Medical Council.
