This is due in no small part to the early, consistent and varied clinical exposure that is a hallmark of medical training in Ireland.

This clinical excellence is augmented by Irish graduates’ superb communication and critical thinking skills. Good communication skills are intrinsic to the practice of Medicine and Dentistry and Irish-trained doctors have a unique ability to explain, to teach and to communicate information.
