About Us


As a dedicated health sciences institution, RCSI is wholly focused on developing healthcare leaders who make a difference worldwide. RCSI has a long heritage of providing medical education for more than 200 years. It has been a distinctive feature for generations that the College enjoys a vibrant combination of nationalities and cultures where our students from around the world exchange ideas and learn from one another. Our students enjoy the full ‘RCSI Experience’, which extends beyond the curriculum, to a rich tapestry of student clubs and societies that equip them for a life of leadership and civic participation.

A globally recognised and respected qualification is the building block on which a successful career as a healthcare professional begins. At RCSI we pride ourselves in providing rigorously evaluated programmes that allow graduates to practice in all regions of the world. We have a unique international perspective with a long tradition of educating students from more than 80 countries at our Dublin campus and more recently at our international campus locations. RCSI graduates are part of our global network of more than 20,000 alumni, who are highly recognised and much sought after internationally.

RCSI is committed to advancing the health and wellbeing of people in the developing world by sharing knowledge and providing training and expertise in medicine, research, healthcare and surgery.
