Clinical years in Irish Medical Schools usually begin during the second semester of their third year of medical education. During the clinical phase, students are not only required to attend regular lectures held throughout the semester, but also to attend clinical learning along with a team of doctors: consultants, specialist registrars, senior registrar, registrar, senior house officers and interns. They would not only learn about bedside mannerism, investigations done in clinical settings to manage various health conditions and management of diseases based on the team’s specialty that the students are attached to.
