Thomas O'Dowd
Fellow Emeritus, Public Health & Primary Care

Biography

Following vocational training in general practice in Ireland, I joined the University of Wales College of Medicine (1980 - 86) as a lecturer and subsequently the University of Nottingham (1986 - 1993 as a senior lecturer and was a partner in local general practices. I was appointed to the Chair of General Practice in Trinity College in 1993. I have lectured at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels and been involved in curriculum change and design and postgraduate research supervision. I was Chairman of the Education Committee of the Medical Council that led to the current professionalisation of medical education in Ireland. I am a practising GP in West Tallaght with a GMS list and practice from a health centre that was built on foot of research by me and my colleagues.
