For non-EU citizens, the trend is going the same was as in the UK. You cannot count on progressing through the system nearly as fast as your Irish counterparts, or at all. You may be able to get house officer posts, but you may not be able to get into schemes. This means you may not be able to get into specific "fellowship" schemes right away and you may have to apply multiple times.

I'm not saying you won't be able to get higher specialist training, but just that it may take a lot longer for you to do so and you should expect to be passed over once if not several times.

basically after SHO you try to get into a scheme or an outside post which will count towards training (you'd have to enquire). If you don't get into a scheme, you try to find posts which will enhance your knowledge for whatever specialty you're going for, but you could be doing that for awhile.

leorl is correct. One must think very carefully when deciding where it is best to train.

Ireland is a small country, and training program selectors will select irish candidates first, before considering others.

As a FMG, you must be prepared to work hard, and essentially "wait" your turn (if it does come) if at all.

Sadly, many FMG work in Ireland for 5-10 years, not get into a proper training scheme, and return home. That's not to say that they didn't get any training, but certainly not what they had hoped for initially.

Best of luck in your decision.
