About Medicine at Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

The RCSI Medicine programme is six years in duration - however, some students are exempt from the first year of the programme on the basis of their educational background.

During your early years studying Medicine at RCSI, you will obtain a solid grounding in the biomedical sciences and you will learn about the body structure and functions in its normal state. You will study anatomy with expert surgeons and healthcare professionals through regional cadaveric dissection.

The intermediate years of the programme will focus on learning about abnormal bodily functions as well as a wide array of clinical skills workshops, small group tutorials and case-based teaching sessions. A lot of your time will be spent in a hospital setting attached to clinical teams. The final years of the programme are spent fully immersed in various clinical specialties on a rotational basis.

Throughout your time at RCSI, you have the opportunity to develop your clinical, communication and professional skills in a safe, simulated environment in Europe’s largest and most modern clinical simulation facility and by training in Ireland’s leading hospitals. 

We also provide you with many opportunities to build your career outside of the classroom through research and clinical electives as well as sub-internships.
