|Become an ISCP member|
The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP) is the sole designated authority acting with the approval of the Minister for Health and Children for the validation of the qualification of Physiotherapy in the Republic of Ireland (S.I. 135/96).
Undergraduate physiotherapy education programmes in the Irish Universities (R.C.S.I., T.C.D., U.C.D., U.L.) are accredited by the ISCP. Graduates are eligible to become members of the ISCP and can work in the Irish public health system without individual qualification validation.
If you obtained your physiotherapy qualification outside the Republic of Ireland, you will be required to have your qualification recognised by the ISCP before you can work in the Irish Public Health system. There is no automatic recognition of Physiotherapy professional qualifications acquired outside the Republic of Ireland. Each application is individually assessed in accordance with EU Directive 2005/36/EC.
