Once again a very successful Prep-for-Med day was held UCC Medical School and Cork University Hospital. Including a visit to the Department of Anatomy & Neuroscience's FLAME Laboratory.


The morning programme included a session in UCC’s state-of-the-art FLAME Anatomy laboratory and clinical skills sessions where students learned how to measure blood pressure, take blood samples, stop bleeding, check pulses, perform CPR, and bring the most advanced Human Patient Simulator (METI-HPS), back to life.

This is UCC’s fourth Prep-for-Med day and again was a great success. Almost 100 Transition Year students and 50 teachers from schools all over Munster attended the Prep-for-Med programme which gives an insight into life as a medical student and medicine as a career.
