NUI Galway today (14 June) conferred degrees on over 350 students. Among that number, 64 were conferred with doctoral degrees.

The largest cohort of students to graduate was over 210 future doctors who received their Honours Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, and Bachelor of Obstetrics (MB, BCh, BAO) degree.

Among the cohort of medical students, Clodagh Flannery McDermott from Breffy, Co. Mayo received 7 out of 14 Final Medical Medals for her outstanding academic performance. Every year, NUI Galway awards the Final Medical Medals to the student who receives the highest mark in each subject area.

Dr John Greally, originally from Galway City but now living in New York, was also conferred with a Doctor of Medicine on Published Work (DMed).Degrees on published work are higher doctorates and are the highest qualifications awarded by the University. They are awarded to scholars who have, over a sustained period, published a substantial body of ground-breaking and influential work in a field of specialisation and who have achieved outstanding distinction internationally in that field.

Speaking at the ceremony, President of NUI Galway, Dr Jim Browne, said: “On behalf of NUI Galway, I congratulate each of today’s graduates. It is very encouraging to see the number of research and graduate degrees which we are conferring today. These graduate numbers continue to grow. From a base of about 50 doctorates per year at the turn of the millennium, we now confer up to four times that number annually.”
