Summary... header image

This programme is a unitary model that integrates the theoretical and the clinical. The modules emphasize the basic and cognitive sciences, which provide a basis for understanding modern health care. Students also learn clinical and communication skills as well as patient contact.  The end of the programme is dedicated to the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for professional practice. 

As students gain experience, they assume greater responsibility and undertake clinical placement rotations in a network of affiliated hospitals and general practices in Galway and around the West of Ireland. In partnership with HSE, and our regional hospitals, the School of Medicine assists in a 12 month Intern Placement Scheme where possible.
