Medical curricula in Ireland are integrated systems-based curricula – this means that students learn about the basic underlying sciences such as Anatomy and Physiology at the same time as studying clinical, psycho-social, communication and ethical aspects. Teaching methods are informed by best practice in medical education. As students progress, they spend more and more time in hospitals, where much of the learning is small group bedside teaching. There is also widespread use of e-learning and simulation teaching in all of the universities.
Our teaching hospitals also provide Post- Graduate training programmes under the auspices of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland.
Medical students graduate with the degree of MB. BCh. B.A.O. and this degree is recognised throughout Europe, North America and Australia. We also prepare students for the North American Medical Licensing Exams.
