About the Association

The Association of Medical and Dental Graduates of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland was founded in 1932, to encourage and maintain social and professional contacts between graduates and to promote the interests of the College and its graduates throughout the world. 

For many years, the Association facilitated individual class reunions and the first official annual reunion for all graduates was held in 1981. This has developed into the Alumni Gathering weekend, held in August every year and attended by hundreds of graduates from all over the world. The Association of Graduates arranges other events during the year including the Annual Dinner, held in the College, usually on the last Saturday in November. The Annual General Meeting is held in May each year and also includes a clinical meeting.

Involvement with the student body is promoted annually by the Association of Graduates' medal, awarded to the final year student, voted by their fellow classmates as the best all round student. The Association also contributes to undergraduate research programmes and awards a prize for a suitable clinical presentation. In 2014, the Association initiated the "Societies' Award, for which Student societies apply for funding for a project of their choice.

The prestigious "Distinguished Graduate" award for outstanding achievement is made to a Graduate member selected by the Association.

The Association presented perpetual trophies in memory of the late Dr Frank Prendiville (Class of 1961) for the Ladies' and Gentlemen's golf competitions taking place at the Annual Reunion/Alumni Weekend The Dr. Frank Prendiville Memorial Cup is open to graduates of the Medical & Dental Schools The Dr. Frank Prendiville Memorial Cup is open to graduates of the Medical & Dental Schools.

The Association would like to encourage more graduate members to become involved in future projects to promote clinical presentations and other interests. Please contact any of the Association officers or Committee members who would be delighted to hear your views.
