Last month, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland – Bahrain (RCSI) hosted a virtual match party via Zoom to celebrate the students and alumni who matched with post-graduate training programmes and jobs in the US, Canada and UK this year, writes Naman Arora.

The event, hosted by RCSI Bahrain president Professor Sameer Otoom, chief operating officer Stepher Harrison-Mirfield, vice president Professor Alfred Nicholson was attended by two senior medical students and five alumni and organised by the RCSI’s careers and alumni office.

81% of graduates have received offers this year for postgraduate training and core surgical or medical training jobs in the UK. The RCSI also saw an 89% pass rate in the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 exam. So far this year, 20 students have matched to the US and six to Canada. Professor Otoom commented: “RCSI Bahrain puts a strong emphasis in its medical programme on clinical competence and the patient’s interests, forming the students into international medical graduates who continuously succeed in receiving extensive career opportunities in respected institutions worldwide. We congratulate our students and alumni for their achievements and wish them well in their future endeavours in their careers.”
