Visiting Programme for Prospective Medical Students

In the Spring of 2011, the Health Sciences Programme Office launched a Visiting Programme for prospective students to UCD School of Medicine and Medical Science.

This new initiative organised by UCD Health Sciences Programme Office provides a platform for the School to showcase their state-of-the-art facilities whilst offering prospective students an insight into life as a UCD Medical Student.

Students are invited to explore the UCD campus, visit medical labs and dissection rooms previously unavailable to visiting students and also meet senior academic medical staff and current medical students. The inaugural visiting programme on the 20th April 2011 was a great success and was enjoyed by all staff and students alike. Nadia D’Alton, Health Sciences Programme Office Director, welcomes and encourages all potential non-EU and EU students to utilise the UCD Medicine Visiting Programme.

The visiting programme includes a welcome address from the Dean and detailed information on the available programmes and student support services with the School of Medicine and Medical Science. Our open days provide an excellent opportunity to meet with academic staff, tour our modern teaching facilities and discover practical realities of life as a medical student at UCD.

We are delighted to welcome prospective students to our Undergraduate and Graduate Entry Medicine degree programmes to any of our open days.
