Prep for Med school day UCC 2020

The School of Medicine at UCC annually hosts the Prep for Med School day for transition year students.

Coláiste Muire has been selected again to participate in UCC’s ‘Prep For Med School Day 2020 . Two of our TY students, Sarah Darcy and Larissa Di Lucia will join schools from all over Kerry, Waterford, Clare, Limerick, Tipperary and Cork in the School of Medicine, Brookfield Health Sciences Complex, UCC on Friday, 31st January , 2020.

During the day Transition Year students are given the opportunity to experience what life as a medical student is really like.  During the morning session, students rotate through specially-designed teaching stations which can include clinical skills and hands-on CPR, and after lunch, they are brought to Cork University Hospital where the students and their accompanying teachers get an opportunity to attend lectures by leading clinicians involved in the delivery of the Medicine programme.

Students also have the opportunity to chat with medical students and School of Medicine academic and administrative staff about admission to the medical programme at UCC and the structure of the programme.
