Tuesday 21st October 2008 - RCSI Mini-Med School in Waterford

21 October 2008

The final night of the highly popular Mini-Med School at Waterford Regional Hospital was held on Tuesday, 21st October 2008.  The programme took place over a five week period every Tuesday evening from Tuesday 23rd September to Tuesday 21st October 2008.

The Mini-Med School is an informative and entertaining public education programme for people who are interested in learning more about medicine, health and the delivery of healthcare in Ireland.

Dr Kevin McGuigan, Director of the RCSI Mini-Med School said, “Mini-Med School provides the general public with a rare opportunity to learn more about medicine and health related areas from leading experts. The programme has proven hugely popular in the past among people nationwide from Mayo to Monkstown. By bringing the programme to Waterford, we have provided those people, who otherwise would not be able to attend the programme held every two years in Dublin, to come and learn more about health related issues from leading health professionals in their own locality.”
