I get a lot of emails from students asking for advice about how to move forward in the medical school admissions process. He stopped at the lights and I eventually caught up to him, he was friendly which surprised me as I was expecting prospect medical students to see one another as their rivals, their competitions as this is a wolf race and only the best and more fierce make it to the top.
There are six medical schools in Ireland They are at Trinity College Dublin , the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland , University College Dublin , University College Cork , University of Limerick and the National University of Ireland, Galway (the National University of Ireland is the degree-awarding institution for all except the University of Limerick and Trinity College).
You are in a somewhat different category – while you would be considered for most US medical schools (unlike international students) as a permanent resident in terms of citizenship, you still need to fulfill the pre-medical requirements and attend a US undergraduate school.
Adding only the two dimensions of primary care and HPSA practice shows only 7 schools with a standardized score above 3, all of them public allopathic schools and 4 of them community based” medical schools with a specific commitment to primary care (as is Wright State, the #4 ranked school in overall social mission).
The medical program consists of 5 years for those who take the traditional Hong Kong’s Advanced Level Examination ( HKALE ) for admission, or 6 years for those who take the new syllabus Hong Kong’s Diploma of Secondary School Education Examination ( HKDSE ). International students who take examinations other the two mentioned will be assessed by the schools to decide if they will take the 5-year program or the 6-year one.
