Ambrose Bermingham Medal in Anatomy

Wed, 31 May 17 07:00

Applications are invited for the Ambrose Bermingham Medal which is awarded annually following a special examination in anatomy.

Prof 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). Prof Bermingham 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. A shortlist for the oral examination is then established based on the results of the written paper.
