Wishing best of luck to Sean MacElwain Rang Suibhne, who was lucky enough to be chosen to partake in the Royal College of Surgeons MiniMed School Programme. RCSI Transition Year MiniMed School Programme offers a five day experience for Transition year students interested in a career in Medicine. The programme covers a wide variety of topics and is designed to introduce the student to both undergraduate and postgraduate aspects of a career in medicine. It takes place in RCSI, 123 St. Stephen's Green and in Beaumont Hospital. This programme is run annually. This interactive programme gives Transition Year students the opportunity to experience what it is like to train and work as a doctor. Students have the opportunity to witness a live operation via video link to the operating theatre. Lectures are hosted on our Electronic Medical Information Technology Platform (Moodle) and in addition students will take part in practical sessions, multiple choice quizzes and competitions. Students will be given access to the moodle platform as required. Topics covered include human anatomy, forensic medicine, surgery, obstetrics & pediatrics, psychiatry, and medicine, including emergency medicine, cardiology, respiratory disease, renal disease & family practice.

This should prove to be an exciting work experience for Sean.
