In the case of candidates who are not graduates of the University of Dublin, it will be required that the bulk of the research work which iseventually submitted will have been carried out by them while on the staff of the College or of the Hospital as the case may be.

After being informed by the Dean of Graduate Studies that theyhave been accepted for registration, candidates must pay the required fees and register within the time allowed.

The Dean of GraduateStudies may grant exemption from this requirement in special cases, e.g.those involving obstetricians or individuals whose higher professionaltraining has been obtained outside Ireland or Britain.

In the special case of a distinguished graduate of the University of Dublin who wishes to submit a thesis for the degree of M.Ch. which isbased solely on published work, which must relate to a single theme, the Dean of Graduate Studies may waive the requirement concerningadmission to the M.Ch. register (See this Section Paragraphs 5.43 and 5.46above) and hence the normal regulations regarding minimum time on the register before submitting a thesis would not apply.
