The School of Medicine also participates in the ERASMUS programme and has long serving, well established partnerships with five European Universities- Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany), Uppsala University (Sweden), University of Lausanne (Switzerland), University of Grenoble (France), University of Montpellier (France).
Within the field of healthcare Civic Engagement entails working with our patients and the communities in which they live to promote and improve community health status. Opportunities include community-based research, for example, public and patient involvement in research , involving patients in teaching and learning activities, in-reach and outreach activities with local school and community groups, volunteering, building capacity and broadening access to health professions education.
That translates as:
- Community and university partnerships
- Working on a shared project
- Both groups bringing and sharing expertise
- Mutual benefit
The Dr Henry Hutchinson Stewart Medical Scholarships and Prizes are among the oldest awards to be offered for competition by the NUI. First established in 1888 following a bequest from the estate of Dr Henry Hutchinson Stewart, awards are offered in a range of subject areas across Medicine, Nursing and Midwifery and the Health Sciences for undergraduate students. These awards are based on students’ final examination results and are based on nomination by Colleges and Schools. NUI Galway’s students have a remarkable record of success, having our students awarded prizes every year since 2007.
The School of Medicine Summer Research Programme is an extracurricular 8 week programme running in June and July each year. It allows students to gain a depth of knowledge in an area not available in the classroom and develop intellectual independence and critical thinking skills. Each year our students undertake research in a wide range of medical disciplines and present at the annual Atlantic Corridor Research Conference.
Launchpad at NUI Galway is designed to support and mentor students in developing entrepreneurial skills.
