The RCSI Alumni Awards is an annual programme that celebrates the outstanding achievement of RCSI alumni, whose exemplary accomplishments and contributions as global healthcare professionals are leading the world to better health.
Established in 2019, every year RCSI recognises outstanding alumni through these prestigious awards. As exemplary role models, RCSI Alumni Awardees inspire all those who aspire to have an impact on healthcare and society. To date, there have been 26 recipients of the award, who are held in the highest esteem across a range of healthcare professions, from Professor Niamh Nic Daeid, Director of the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science to Dr Ben LaBrot, Founder of the Floating Doctors.
Speaking at the launch of the new sponsorship, Professor Cathal Kelly, Vice-Chancellor, RCSI said: “The RCSI Alumni Awards sponsored by FRS Recruitment acknowledge RCSI Alumni, whose exemplary accomplishments and contributions as global healthcare professionals are leading the world to better health.
