Professor Dermot Kelleher on the Tercentenary of the School of Medicine and on his Trinity Days.

For centuries, Trinity medics have contributed to medical education and practice around the world. William Stokes and Robert Graves and other famous physicians were clinical researchers of their day. They made observations, they wrote them up, they published them, they treated their patients, and they taught their students. These were the leaders, and we, at the School of Medicine, intend to preserve their legacy of preparing exceptional doctors who can lead the medical profession in the 21st century.
