NUI Galway's Medical Academies

In the clinical years at NUI, Galway, students relocate from Galway to spend a full calendar year at one of our academies. Each academy has a purpose-built facility of the highest international standards of medical education, comprising lecture halls, tutorial rooms, clinical skills labs and student chat/social spaces. These academy buildings are located on Saolta University Hospital sites, ensuring ease of access from the hospital to teaching and learning facilities. Students gain a unique experience of service delivery in a secondary health care centre.  Each academy has dedicated academic and administrative staff, under the direction of an academy Dean, with excellent student-staff ratios. Small student numbers enhance teaching and mentoring from clinical staff and facilitate patient contact.
