The RCSI GEM Open Days provide prospective graduate entrants with the opportunity to meet RCSI GEM staff and students and also to get a taste for some of the innovative teaching and learning methods at RCSI.

The format of the day is based around small group interactive sessions led by staff and students which mirror "a day in the life of a GEM student".

Here's what past attendees have said about the RCSI GEM Open Day

"Graduate Entry Medicine is a different programme to what you get as an 18 year old, RCSI give you a taste for what life will be like and they show you this in a custom built GEM facility"

"RCSI have a very good Graduate Entry Medicine programme and open day, you have access to doctors, interns and students and you do some basic clinical skills"

"A great predictor of what the course will be like, you get to know everyone quite quickly".

"I came out very excited…it was a very good open day. There are also useful videos on YouTube that gave a feeling for the open day for those who couldn’t attend"
