4th Year Students Participate in RCSI Mini Med Programme

This week,  4th year students Selin Palanduz, Alex Brady and Clara Donaghy had the opportunity to experience what it’s like to study medicine and work as a doctor as part of the RCSI Transition Year MiniMed programme. We sat down with Clara to hear about her experience at the MiniMed week:

“Overall it was a great experience. We got a really good insight into the Medical profession. It wasn’t just lectures and conversations, we watched a live C-section and got to see the simulation rooms. The mock surgery room and mock A&E room were amazing. They also have patient dummies that are very realistic, they actually talk which was really cool. They showed us how x-ray works and taught us how to tell if a bone is broken. Then we used plaster of Paris to make casts for each other’s arms which was really fun.

I had always considered studying medicine but wasn’t 100% certain. However, after spending time in the RCSI, it’s definitely on the cards! I would definitely recommend the MiniMed programme to anyone thinking of studying medicine and I know the other students on the programme would too!” – Clara Donaghy, 4th year
