A team comprising of Year 1 and Year 2 students who attended RCSI on Sunday 17th February were fortunate to win the National 'SurgiQuiz' against all other Irish Medical Schools including Queens University, Belfast. Furthermore, Ciarán Nannery, won the overall surgical skills competition meaning a double swoop for UL GEMS on the day. This was made all the more impressive as UL GEMS had only six team members compared to most other teams who had ten.
