If you are looking for a career that keeps you always challenged and interested, then you really should consider a career in tax! The fact that tax is constantly changing helps keep it interesting. Every year we have a new Budget/Finance Act which introduces new tax law that we have to get on top off. So it means we are constantly learning and need to be up to date with changes as quickly as possible – that’s what our clients expect of us.

Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Summary... header image

This programme is a unitary model that integrates the theoretical and the clinical. The modules emphasize the basic and cognitive sciences, which provide a basis for understanding modern health care. Students also learn clinical and communication skills as well as patient contact.  The end of the programme is dedicated to the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for professional practice. 

As students gain experience, they assume greater responsibility and undertake clinical placement rotations in a network of affiliated hospitals and general practices in Galway and around the West of Ireland. In partnership with HSE, and our regional hospitals, the School of Medicine assists in a 12 month Intern Placement Scheme where possible.
