In a report released this week by the Medical School Careers Office, 480 out of 483 Medical School graduates (2015-2020), or 99.4%, have been offered positions at over 200 medical centres around the world for residency training, internships, and research.
More specifically, the Doctor of Medicine (MD) graduates have reached an absolute 100% employability record while in the case of the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) graduates this percentage was 99.35%.
The report includes allocations in several highly acclaimed medical centres of the world like John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, St Mary’s Hospital, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and University College Hospital in London, Royal Berkshire Hospital in Berkshire, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston (Harvard University affiliated), Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, Mount Sinai in New York, the University of Toronto and Dalhousie University in Canada, Sheba Medical Center and Hadassah University Hospital in Israel, St George Hospital in Sydney, Australia, Wellington Hospital in New Zealand and the American University of Beirut Medical Center in Lebanon.
Ms Sue Chrysostomou, the Medical School’s Senior Careers Adviser commented “This year we saw our first MD cohort graduate having overcome a myriad of challenges amid the coronavirus pandemic, and feel very proud and pleased that they have all managed to secure employment. The same applies to our MBBS graduates with only three cases being in the deferral process whilst reapplying to postgraduate training programmes. These results demonstrate the success of the support system provided by the Medical School which guides and advises all students from Year 1 to their Graduation and beyond in order to ensure that everyone has a clear idea of their career aspirations and how to best achieve them.”
Professor Andreas Charalambous, the Medical School Dean added “This is a testament to the hard work of our graduates, and their recognition by the international medical community, as well as the quality of medical education that they have received at our School. Our graduates continue to thrive worldwide with allocations in countries including the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, France, Ireland, Greece, Malta, Israel, Lebanon, Australia, New Zealand, and Cyprus. These expansive location placements are evidence of the diligence shown by our graduates and the Medical School to support students near and far during a uniquely challenging year for global healthcare.’’
