Anatomy Summer Studentships

Two studentships are offered each summer to undergraduate students of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI). The aim of these studentships is to improve our understanding of anatomy research in a manner that promotes interest in the subject at a formative stage in undergraduate health professional training.

The studentships will provide students with a first-hand opportunity to investigate aspects of anatomical research and it applications.

The "Guiney Studentship" and the "Ryan Studentship" are named in honour of Professor Eddie Guiney* and Professor Max Ryan**, former Surgeon Prosectors in the Department of Anatomy, RCSI.

Students will work on a particular project in a research context in the Department of Anatomy, RCSI, Dublin. Findings of the projects will be presented by students at the College’s annual research day the following Spring, at the International Conference for Healthcare and Medical Students (ICHAMS), and at a meeting of the Anatomical Society.

The two studentships are available by open competition among all undergraduate RCSI students. Students will be funded to work for 8 weeks at the usual stipend rate during the summer period, under the supervision of a member of staff from the Department of Anatomy.

In addition to the normal stipend, an Anatomical Society Travel Grant will be made to enable the student attend a meeting of the Anatomical Society and to pay their membership subscription.

Informal enquiries regarding projects can be made to Professor Clive Lee:
