Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland
The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) has been at the forefront of educating healthcare professionals since 1784. It began by being the home of surgical training for Ireland and now the college reflects the diversity of healthcare professions and focuses on improving healthcare training to yield improvements in patient outcomes.
Based in the heart of Dublin city center, with four overseas campuses, RCSI is dedicated to the development of healthcare leaders who make a difference worldwide. Students benefit from early contact with patients in a hospital setting and the College offers excellent support to students on their journey to becoming a healthcare professional with small class sizes, tutorials and one-to-one teaching. The college enjoys a vibrant combination of nationalities and cultures where students from around the world exchange ideas and learn from one another. More than 60 nationalities are represented on the RCSI student body and students enjoy the full ‘RCSI Experience’, which extends beyond the curriculum to a rich tapestry of student clubs and societies that equip them for a life of leadership and civic participation. RCSI graduates are part of a global healthcare network of more than 20,000 alumni, who are highly recognized and much sought after internationally.
