"I can wholeheartedly recommend the MCh programme in RCSI as a stepping stone for anyone considering a career in surgery."

I would recommend [the programme] to anyone considering a career in surgery and found it very manageable with my work on the hospital.

David Moore, Class of 2021

The MCh helped me to acquire a foundation in research methodology in a supportive environment. I particularly enjoyed the stimulating conversations on research and healthcare ethics. Furthermore, the MCh assisted in my career progression. I had a higher degree and a peer-reviewed publication at the time of interview for higher training.

Deirdre Nally, Class of 2020

This course spurred me on to do an MD, and thus continue in academia, but it also allowed me to secure a place on the higher surgical training scheme and take the next step toward my goal. The thing I will remember the most however about the programme was how dedicated the faculty were to the scholars and especially how ready and willing my methodology supervisor was to helping me take my idea to a fully formed thesis.
