The Discipline of Paediatrics at the University of Dublin Trinity College has a long history of expertise in the training of clinical professionals. The major paediatric teaching hospital (The National Children's Hospital) of the University of Dublin is the oldest paediatric teaching hospital in Ireland and the UK. The Hospital was founded for the training of medical students. It has a recognised tradition of excellence in paediatric teaching. It is recognised for senior registrar training in paediatrics by the Royal College of Physicians. The National Children's Hospital has a long association with the University of Dublin, dating back to 1821 and has held the chair of paediatrics since 1960. It is with this long history of excellence in clinical teaching that the Department of Paediatrics provides undergraduate and postgraduate teaching including a Masters of Science in Paediatrics. We are looking forward to working in partnership with other Universities at the National Children’s Hospital on the St James’s Hospital Campus.
