Prep for Med
Prep for Med School day
The School of Medicine at UCC annually hosts the Prep for Med School day for transition year students.
Transition Year students are given the opportunity to experience what life as a medical student is really like. During the morning session, students rotate through specially-designed teaching stations which can include clinical skills and hands-on CPR, and after lunch, they are brought to Cork University Hospital where the students and their accompanying teachers get an opportunity to attend lectures by leading clinicians involved in the delivery of the Medicine programme.
Students are accompanied by a teacher (either a Guidance Counsellor or a Science teacher) and a special morning programme is developed for the visiting teachers (replacements for teachers will not be considered) .
Students and teachers also have the opportunity to chat with medical students and School of Medicine academic and administrative staff about admission to the medical programme at UCC and the structure of the programme.
