I am very grateful to University College Dublin for providing excellent clinical and research training and for the numerous opportunities to do clinical electives at some of the best hospitals in the US, such as University of Pennsylvania Hospital, Washington University, Emory and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Their knowledge regarding North American board exams, electives and residency application processes is comprehensive. They are always willing to hear students’ concerns and act with the best interests of international students at heart. They provide endless resources to support students during their time at UCD both academically and professionally.

Class of 2020

The six years I spent studying medicine at UCD were incredible, and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to study and create memories here. One of my favourite aspects of the program is the opportunity to do research and clinical electives abroad. The Student Summer Research Awards programme allowed me to choose research projects according to my speciality interests and geographic preferences. I was able to complete research in Dublin, Boston and even in my home country, Lebanon. These experiences opened many doors for me, and I went on to present at a number of conferences and publish in international journals.
