The Paul Beeson Fellowship Award

The highly prestigious and sought after Beeson program is named in honour of the late Paul B Beeson MD, who was professor emeritus of medicine at the University of Washington, and whose vision was to increase the number of physicians with a combined clinical , academic and scientific expertise to care for a growing older population. The Beeson Award expanded to Ireland with the goal of helping to train physicians in geriatrics and to help build Ireland’s capacity to provide high-quality care for older adults and advance knowledge of geriatric care. It is awarded to scholars who are laying clinically relevant groundwork in areas related to ageing such as the biology of ageing and age related diseases, as well as health outcomes, health services and clinical management issues. TCD has been awarded 2 Beeson fellowships to date - to Dr Patricia Kearney and Dr Mimi Fan.
