The graduate entry medical programme at the University of Limerick will produce doctors who are competent, confident and caring; who understand the scientific basis of medicine; who recognise the social and environmental context in which health and illness exist and in which medicine is practised; and who have skills for and commitment to service, teamwork, scientific enquiry, self-fulfilment and life-long learning.

Graduates will demonstrate the ability to consider issues and to identify and attempt to solve problems related to individual and population health with due regard to ethics, resources and the concerns of the society in which they work.
