Top three honours for Lucan graduate doctor

ON Monday June 25, two hundred and eighty-three future doctors donned caps and gowns to graduate from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland School of Medicine (RCSI) as part of the College’s summer graduation ceremonies which took place in the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD).

Amongst these was Dr Danyal Khan from Lucan, who graduated with grades in the top three of his class.

RCSI’s School of Medicine conferring ceremony sees the largest number of doctors in Ireland graduate each year and the graduation ceremony is a celebration for students and their families, some of whom have travelled from all over the world to attend the ceremony.

Professor Cathal Kelly, Chief Executive/ Registrar, RCSI, congratulated all those graduating on their success: “Today’s ceremony is a wonderful celebration for our graduates and a culmination of their years of hard work and dedication on the path to qualify with a degree in medicine.

“These future doctors have benefited from teaching in an environment where excellence in patient-centred care is the priority from day one, equipping our graduates with all the necessary knowledge and skills required to be rounded and clinically distinguished doctors, in whatever speciality career path they choose.

"We look forward to watching our graduates progress on the next phase of their journey as healthcare leaders of the future.”

RCSI is ranked among the top two per cent of universities worldwide in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings (2018) and its research is ranked first in Ireland for citations.
