    A few quick questions regarding four year Irish MD programs

    Advertisements



    .
    A few quick questions:

    1. Are any of the four 4 year Irish med programs ** considered to be better (or worse) than the others for return to the US? Is any considered to be more prestigious or less prestigious?


    2. Of the four year Irish programs which is considered to be the most difficult to be admitted to as a North American student? The easiest to be admitted?


    3. Since the Irish schools use a common application for the North American med applicants is it possible for a North American to be accepted to more than one Irish med school?


    4. Which of the four year programs is in the best/ most interesting area of Ireland?


    Thanks.

    I believe UCD is the most prestigious of that lot, but I doubt that any of them are going to hurt you compared to the others when it comes time for the Match. The admissions difficulty/acceptance questions would probably be best posed to the good people at Atlantic Bridge: US and Canadian students studying medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine in Ireland, who process the applications.

    As far as locations, it really depends on what you're looking for. It would seem that UCD and RCSI are located in areas with the most going on, but Ireland it beautiful... plus, it's medical school. You'll be kept plenty busy with studies. Good luck!
