2016 RCSI MiniMed Programme

This January I attended the RCSI MiniMed Programme. Over 180 students from all around Ireland with some travelling from as far as Boston and Switzerland attended the week. The action-packed week consisted of several live surgeries including a C-section, tonsillectomy and a gall bladder removal. The content was quite graphic and several students passed out. The rest of the week consisted of lectures from consultants in various areas of medicine. We also got to practise our surgery skills on dummies and this included taking blood and stitching wounds. We travelled between Beaumont Hospital and the RCSI on St. Stephens Green during the week. It was an enjoyable, informative week.
