Available Intern posts - 2016 and/or 2017

Hi all,

Does anyone have the statistics for the number of applicants to how many intern posts were made available in 2016 and 2017, please? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Many thanks,

Recap

I think they guarantee a place for all those who attended Irish universities. I'm not sure how many people apply from other countries.

There's generally just enough places for CAO applicants, although I think last year was the first time that 6 CAO applicants didn't receive an intern spot in the first round.
They've changed it this year such that it's based on CAO status, so even Irish students who attended university abroad would be unlikely to receive a place

I think that's fair enough. Makes sense that those who attend Irish Universities are given priority, when many of the leading hospitals are affiliated with Irish Universities.

I have so many questions, but don't even know if I'll be able to do GEM next year as I'm awaiting my GAMSAT results. I don't want to get ahead of myself just yet.
