The prestigious Reuben Harvey Prize is awarded by RCPI each year to the students who achieve the highest marks in their class for final-year examinations in medicine, surgery and obstetrics. The prize, established in 1882, was until this year only awarded to students in the three Dublin medical schools —University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin and the RCSI. This year, for the first time, the top-scoring final-year medical students in the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG), University of Limerick, University College Cork and Queen’s University Belfast also received this award in recognition of their academic excellence.
