There was lively debate, attested to by IMO President, Dr. Ronan Boland. Prof John Higgins, Head of UCC College of Medicine and Health, was also in attendance.

The motion under debate was; “This house believes that modern day surgery has saved more lives than modern day medicine.”
Dr. Boland said; “The first IMO national medical student debate took place last year and proved to be a very successful and popular event. We are delighted that students from UCC have now decided to organize a selection process to represent their faculty at the IMO national debate."
The winner of this debate receives €250 and represents the medical faculty of UCC at the IMO National Student Debate in Dublin on Friday, 2nd December in the Royal College of Surgeons.
