Well known medical figure looking for Irish students.

This Wednesday Leaving Cert results will be a disappointment for many students going for medicine in Ireland (and their parents). As every year. Well known surgeon Professor Jawien from one of the best Medical Schools in Poland is coming this Thursday to Ireland to recruit students, also those lacking a few points to study in Ireland.

With over 55,000 students sitting their Leaving Cert earlier this summer, results day is most likely the biggest day of their lives, to date. This day will affect 1 in 80 people in Ireland, and probably have an impact on most households in the country.

“Students reach over 700 points (Leaving Cert and HPAT combined) and still cannot realise their dream to become a doctor. Should this prevent them from following their ambition to practice medicine and help people? We think not!” says Michael Murphy, Student Advisor at Medical Poland. He represents Nicolaus Copernicus University’s Collegium Medicum (CM) in Bydgoszcz, Poland that runs a 6 year MD program through English. Dentistry, nursing, pharmacy and physiotherapy are also on the list.

Professor Arkadiusz Jawien who is coming to Ireland this Thursday is a recognised vascular surgeon, President of the European Society for Vascular Surgery and a Council Member of the European Wound Management Association. He initiated medical programmes through English at Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz that now becomes popular with Irish students. “The school is one of the newest in the country that is ranked 2nd (yes, second-ranked! Ireland ranks 20th) in OECD in Education (OECD Better Life Index) and therefore offers state of the art facilities, that seem rare in Ireland”, claims the father of one of this year’s successful applicants, Morgan McCabe.

It is not too late for some, so visiting Dublin Open Day on Thursday, 13th August is an opportunity to evaluate options after the results come out on Wednesday. The event takes place at Medical Poland, 63 Lower Gardiner Street, Dublin 1, 5pm to 6:30pm. There will be a chance to meet student advisors, talk to successful students starting their medical journey in Poland this September and Professor Jawien himself.

Tips before going and advice for when you get here to study Veterinary.

So the day finally arrived! I was about to begin my journey towards the rest of my life, a journey of an Irish studying veterinary medicine abroad, in the heart of Europe! I was preparing for weeks for the move and was filled with both excitement and nerves. I had been researching more about the university and started brushing up on some topics the Medical Poland Admission Office had suggested I should revise. I had never lived or studied abroad before so was nervous about the change in culture and living away from my friends and family. I had been in contact with some veterinary students through the Facebook page about suggestions before moving and they answered any questions I had. I also would recommend downloading the Duolingo app to begin some basic Polish so you’re not completely lost when you get here! Its important to keep an eye on Instagram and Facebook for updates and discussions between students, Medical Poland and the university.
