10 Year Celebration of Graduate Entry Medicine in RCSI and in Ireland

07 October 2016

More than 60 GEM Alumni as well as Faculty, students and staff joined together to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Graduate Entry Medicine programme in RCSI on the 7th October.

As part of the celebrations, attendees enjoyed talks by Professor Alan Johnson and Dr Tom Farrell plus a panel discussion with Alumni from each graduating class. Thank you to everyone who attended.

About GEM: In 2006, RCSI became the first medical school in Ireland to admit students to a four-year Graduate Entry Medicine (GEM) programme and since then, 415 doctors have graduated from the programme. Graduate Entry Medicine offers students with a degree in another discipline the opportunity to study medicine at an accelerated rate of a four year programme instead of the more traditional five- or six-year (direct entry) programme.
