Hi, does anyone know how these two schools compare to each other? I intend to practice in Canada but I am beginning to also be open to other options such as working in Ireland or the UK and maybe Australia.

USyd is an Australian medical school you attain your basic medical degree.
RCSI is an Irish post-graduate specialist college to attain specialist qualification in surgery.

Two completely different institutions in two completely different parts of the world. Not comparable.

I'm assuming koalabear7 is referring to their graduate entry medicine program: Graduate Entry Medicine Course at RCSI Dublin - Why RCSI Dublin?

I'd guess for getting back to Canada, you'd face similar challenges from each of these schools. At least Ireland is on the same schedule as Canada whereas Australia is off by a few months. Hopefully someone can provide more info though, I'm definitely not an expert...

Yes, I’m referring to the Graduate Entry Medicine course at RCSI so both are basic medical degrees.

RCSI is more expensive than University of Sydney, which is why I’m trying to see if it really is a better choice than Sydney.
