Why Medicine at RCSI Dublin?

During your early years studying Medicine at Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, you will obtain a solid grounding in the biomedical sciences. You will learn about the body structure and functions in its normal state and study anatomy with expert surgeons and healthcare professionals through regional cadaveric dissection.

The intermediate years of the Medicine programme will focus on learning about abnormal bodily functions. You will attend a wide array of clinical skills workshops, small group tutorials and case-based teaching sessions. A lot of your time will be spent in a hospital setting attached to clinical teams. The final years of the programme are spent fully immersed in various clinical specialties on a rotational basis.

RCSI is committed to producing clinically skilled doctors with the most relevant and robust experience required to work in today's health systems. During your time at Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, you will develop your clinical, communication and professional skills in a safe, simulated environment.
