First Year Med FAQs

Well! After what seemed like the longest and the fastest year of my life, I’m delighted to say that I’ve passed my exams and am officially 1/4 doctor with three years left to go.


A lot of people have been getting in touch wanting information about it, about RCSI and about my experiences and the same questions kept popping up so I’ve done a short video. It answers questions about the age profile of my class, the different backgrounds we come from, hints and tips about what to expect and other useful nuggets of information.

If I’ve left anything out, please get in touch and I’ll do my best to help you. There’s stuff there that I really wish I had known before I made the leap!
