In terms of the medical teaching, there are wonderful lecturers that are very willing to help. In the pre-clinical years, there are lab sessions in which you have the opportunity to work in smaller groups and solidify the theory of that particular subject. In terms of the clinical rotations, we had the opportunity to go to one of the four medical academies which was an invaluable experience. The hospital placement had exceptional tutors that went above and beyond to challenge you while encouraging you and constantly providing feedback. Starting clinical rotations for the first time is intimidating, but I was very quickly put at ease by the teams. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from the clinical tutors and all of the doctors in the hospital who have provided me with a very high standard of education. They have inspired me to always keep pushing myself to be the best I can be and to take advantage of every opportunity. What I like about living in Galway? Everything! It is the most beautiful city, with students everywhere you go! The people are so friendly and kind. It is truly a home away from home and there is a real sense of community at University of Galway!
