Congratulations to our new Members, conferred at ceremonies in RCPI today

A sense of achievement

The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland welcome 184 new Members at a series of conferring ceremonies at No. 6 Kildare Street today, 18 July 2019.

The doctors have all passed the College’s Membership (MRCPI) examinations, a world renowned medical qualification. It is an immense achievement and Membership gives a real sense of belonging and provides many opportunities.

119 doctors achieved their MRCPI qualification in General Medicine, 29 doctors achieved MRCPI in Paediatrics, and 36 doctors achieved MRCPI in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

President's welcome

President of RCPI Professor Mary Horgan welcomed the new Members in No.6 Kildare St, saying,

“I would like to welcome you to No.6 Kildare Street, the home the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland. I extend a particular welcome to the new Members. This College is now your College, and you should feel entirely at home here.  You are the future of the College. On behalf of all of the Council and Officers of the College, I congratulate you.”

“Our focus is nurturing doctors for life. It is my vision, as President, to enable you to provide world-class care in a supportive work environment where you and your patients feel valued and respected.
Passing the Membership Examination is a very significant achievement and all the more so given that you have busy clinical jobs. I would encourage you to become involved with your college and to join us for our events throughout the year," Prof Horgan said.
