I studied European Studies at Trinity College Dublin and Politics at the London School of Economics but realised a career in these fields was not for me.
Having completed degrees and been gainfully employed, returning to study at 26 was a daunting prospect. All the more daunting was studying medicine from an arts background.
I chose RCSI for three reasons: Great facilities. Great legacies. Great location. GEM brings people with a variety of disciplines together with a common goal. As graduates, we had already had the ‘college experience’ and were ready to commit to some serious study.
Our small group of 60 Irish and international students bonded and still support each other.
After graduation, I completed my intern year at Beaumont Hospital before spending two years in Sydney, Australia and returning to Dublin for my basic specialist training in Internal Medicine. I am currently on the Higher Specialist Training scheme in Gastroenterology, and planning a Fellowship in France.
