ROYAL COLLEGE OF SURGEONS

The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) is a professional association that is responsible for the medical specialty of surgery throughout Ireland. The RCSI received its royal charter in 1784. It is accredited by the National University of Ireland (NUI). Its main campus is situated on St. Stephen’s Green in Dublin. 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. At present, it incorporates schools of medicine, pharmacy, physiotherapy, and nursing, and thus provides both undergraduate and postgraduate levels of education and research activities in several healthcare fields. Students benefit from early contact with patients in a hospital setting and the College offers excellent support to students on their journey to becoming healthcare professionals. 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.
