RCSI Bahrain Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

Medical Programmes

Our medical programme is designed to give you a sound knowledge of both the science and art of medicine. We focus on giving you the essential skills and competencies you need to take straight into the workplace with a strong emphasis on professionalism, ethics and patient safety.

RCSI Bahrain’s medical programme is either five or six years, depending on your academic qualification before joining the university. The six-year programme starts with Foundation Year, which then leads into the five-year programme, consisting of the Junior Cycle, Intermediate Cycle, and Senior Cycle. Some students may be exempt from the Foundation Year depending on academic qualifications, and may enter directly into the five-year programme, commencing in Junior Cycle. This will be assessed on an individual basis when applying.
