Healthy respect for tradition as young doctors receive results
THERE were scenes of celebration as more than 250 final-year medical students received their exam results from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
The college’s age old tradition of reading the results out to the students from the top of the stairs was once again observed at the campus in St Stephen’s Green yesterday in Dublin.
Delighted students will now be able to embark on their careers as doctors.

The Canadian national was handed a bottle of Champagne as the hardworking students deservedly let their hair down.
Dr Ruth Carey (inset, far left), Dr Shazil Jamal (centre) and Dr Liah McElliott (right) were clearly also overjoyed after hearing their final results.
