Partnerships

Over the years the School of Medicine and its affiliated hospitals have produced major players of Irish medicine. Working closely with our colleagues in other academic institutions in Ireland and internationally is one of the underlying principles of the School's operation today. Our academics collaborate with colleagues in Ireland and around the world in a wide range of areas. We are also participating in a number of partnerships as an institution. Here are some examples.

Irish Unversities and Medical Schools Consortium

In addition to TCD, the Irish Universities and Medical Schools Consortium comprises the medical and dental schools in the three constituent universities of the National University of Ireland, University College Cork, University College Dublin and National University of Ireland Galway. There is a strong ethos in pioneering research and a commitment to education as the engine for development.
