Over on the MyUCD Blog current UCD School of Medicine student Eoin Downes takes a look back at when he was filling out his CAO application and explains why he put Medicine in UCD down as number one.
The School celebrated the 2018 UCD Medicine Conferring with its annual conferring dinner at UCD O'Reilly Hall on the evening of Thursday 7th June 2018. A number of student and staff medals and prizes were presented and the School's Honorary Fellowship was awarded to Dr Rhona Mahony, Master at the National Maternity Hospital.
We post a selection of photographs from the event here. A larger selection of photographs from the event are available on the School’s Flickr account. High resolution copies can be downloaded for personal, non-commercial use.
What will it take to eliminate HPV cancers? The Opportunity to Eliminate HPV Cancers is a scientific meeting taking place in RCPI on 9 July 2018 and is approved for 6 CPD credits. All healthcare professionals are welcome to attend and it's free of charge for RCPI Trainees
