The Aodán Ó Donnchadha Memorial Prize
The Final Medical class of 1990 subscribed to a fund for the provision of an annual prize to commemorate their late classmate Aodán Ó Donnchadha. The Extern for the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health will assess the best Paediatric projects and decide who should be awarded the prize, if necessary aided by advice from members of the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health. Shortlisted candidates should keep all information gathered as this may be required by the External examiner. The award will be made provided the student chosen fulfils the other criteria:
- The prize will be called "The Aodán Ó Donnchadha Memorial Prize".
- The Academic Council considers that a sufficiently high standard has been attained.
- The successful candidate has been a student in University College Cork, for the three years immediately preceding the Final Medical Examination.
- He/she has taken and passed the whole of the Final Medical Examination and has taken each module for the first time.
