If you are unsure I would recommend coming to an open day in the college and if possible also doing the Garda Reserve. It gives the best insight imaginable into the work of Gardaí.

Medicine - RC001
 

RCSI offers a five and six year course for school leavers. Some students may be exempt from the foundation year, based on their academic subjects and / or grades they have achieved prior to admission. If, so they will undertake the five year programme.

Teaching is largely systems based with the early introduction of clinical case studies and data intrepration. Early patient contact facilitates integration of the basic sciences and is followed by a clinical programme. 


 

Alternative to CAO - This course is open to graduates of any discipline who obtain the necessary GAMSAT results. The medical course has a strong emphasis on small group teaching within the Curriculum. Small group teaching involves seminars with tutors in groups of ten and bedside teaching with students in groups of six. Simulation scenarios occur in groups of one tutor per three students in the senior clinical years. The programme provides continuous appraisal, mentoring and case presentations on an individual basis along with frequent reviews of your clinical progress with senior clinicians in the clinical years.
