Even in my short time at RCSI I have quickly become
aware that RCSI Alumni constitute a very signi cant and
unique community. You are a community that is diverse in
nationality, culture, and belief, that is wide-ranging in your
talent, in uence and reach. Above all, you are a community
of dynamic individuals who, even with the multiplicity of
locations and the variety of professions and specialities you
represent, remain united by a common passion, which is the
improvement of human health, and a shared experience _ your
time in RCSI.
e focus of the newly established Alumni Relations team is to
help create the ties that bind our unique community of Alumni
to each other and to RCSI. Given the rapidly evolving global
healthcare provision, the involvement of Alumni in the life of
the College, to help shape the future of healthcare has never
been more urgent and important. I am delighted therefore, to
welcome Sonja Lee to the team as the newly appointed Alumni
Relations Manager to lead
the charge.

RCSI Matters, we celebrate the
accomplishments of Alumni and the passion that drives you in

In the pages that follow, you will nd news of these diverse
achievements and the personal stories of Alumni who have
extended the application of their training beyond healthcare

Alumni have made contributions that are set to endure.
I believe the profound and life-shaping impact of the RCSI
experience manifests itself in the photographs and notes that
you have allowed us to share with classmates and faculty, and
they attest to the continuing in uence of RCSI and the lifelong
friendships forged during your time with us.
