Overview from the Director Postgraduate Teaching and Learning

The School of Medicine is an international leader in postgraduate education and aims to drive forward the development of postgraduate teaching, learning and research. Our 600 postgraduate students form part our the thriving research culture and learning environment of the School.

Our 26 taught postgraduate courses place an emphasis on rigorous science and research, and are responsive to societal and population changes. Our students benefit from a dedicated and engaged teaching faculty, excellent facilities, and high-quality transferrable skills. Some courses target specific professions, while others are open to a broad range of professionals. To facilitate individuals to continue their professional work, we offer both full-time and part-time options for most of our courses. Please note that all of our courses are subject to minimum numbers of enrolments for them to run. A full list of taught courses is outlined below.

Our research community works across seven thematic areas including children’s health, cancer, personalised medicine, mental health and neuroscience, infection and immunology, population health and health policy, and ageing. We have long-standing partnerships with the Health Service Executive, teaching hospitals, primary care facilities, industry, health-focused charities and non-governmental organisations. These established relationships are essential to translating research evidence into clinical practice and health policy to positively effect patients' and populations health. Our research students can obtain degrees of PhD, MSc, M.D. or MCh.

All postgraduate activities within the School are coordinated by the Postgraduate Teaching and Learning Office. This office is located within the Old Stone Building in the Trinity Centre for Health Sciences in St. James's Hospital.
