The policy on the application of EU community preference in the recruitment process for postgraduate medical training places was put in place in 2013 to support a policy of self-sufficiency.

The HSE has requested a formal review of the current policy on the application of EU community preference to be undertaken with the Department of Health. My Department has agreed to this review which will be undertaken in advance of the commencement of the recruitment process for the July 2022 intake this autumn.
