Where Will You be at 23?

Ambrose Bermingham (1864-1905) was appointed Dean and Professor of Anatomy at the Catholic University of Ireland Medical School (UCD) at the age of 23 (1887-1905). Ambrose showed great aptitude and ability at such a young age, in keeping with this tradition the Ambrose Bermingham Medal was founded by the college and has been awarded to medical students since 1916.

The fund has been augmented by gifts from the Archbishops of Dublin. Competition for the Medal is open to candidates who have completed semester one of Stage Three Medicine (Undergraduate) or Stage Two Medicine (Graduate Entry) at the time of the medal examination. The Medal is awarded on the results of a special examination in anatomy held annually. Should two or more high quality candidates be selected following the written exam a shortlist for an oral examination is then established.
