About Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), is a Dublin-based medical institution, situated on St. Stephen's Green. The college is one of the five Recognised Colleges of the National University of Ireland. The college dates back to 1784 and at present incorporates schools of medicine, physiotherapy, pharmacy and nursing, providing both undergraduate and postgraduate levels of medical education. RSCI is a private institute.

Among medical institutions outside Ireland, the use of the term "Royal College" currently indicates an oversight body for postgraduate medical education. RCSI performs such a function, but it is unique among the four Royal Colleges of Surgeons (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, and Royal College of Surgeons of England) in that 100 years after its establishment, an undergraduate medical school was founded and this is now Ireland’s largest medical school with over 3000 students from 60 countries.
