RCSI Bahrain holds Orientation Week for new students


Around 300 new students have enrolled in RCSI Bahrain for courses in medicine and nursing. During the annual orientation week, students from 20 different nationalities were introduced to different aspects of student life with the support of RCSI Bahrain staff and senior students.

This year's proceedings commenced with a welcome breakfast held in the campus atrium, where students and their parents were given the opportunity to hear from Professor Sameer Otoom, RCSI Bahrain President, as well as Professor Joe McMenamin, Vice President of Academic Affairs & Head of School of Medicine, and Professor Seamus Cowman, Head of School of Nursing, who outlined rules & regulations and the university's expectations of students.


The new intake consists of students coming from a diverse range of countries, some as far afield as South Africa, Trinidad & Tobago and Canada, attracted by the prestigious reputation and international caliber of RCSI Bahrain.

RCSI Bahrain is celebrating 10 years in Bahrain and provides courses in medicine, nursing and postgraduate studies.
