Course info


The School of Medicine is responsible for the education and training of individuals who will play a major role in health care, including doctors, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and radiation therapists. There are numerous opportunities for study at postgraduate level through the Research and Postgraduate School within Health Sciences.

The School of Medicine maintains its international leadership today in biomedical research and postgraduate education and was the first Faculty of Health Sciences in these islands. This interdisciplinary approach offers the potential to educate and train the full range of health care personnel in an integrated Faculty.

The Haughton Institute for Postgraduate Education and Training in the Health Sciences was launched in 1998, in order to support postgraduate education and research between the Faculty of Health Sciences and its teaching hospitals. This is an independent corporate body wholly owned by its three members – Trinity College, St. James’s Hospital and the Adelaide and Meath Hospital Dublin incorporating the National Children’s Hospital at Tallaght. The institute works closely with the Health Sciences Research and Postgraduate School. The Health Sciences School of Research and Postgraduate Studies supports and coordinates research and graduate activity in the Faculty of Health Sciences including research centres, postgraduate taught programmes at postgraduate diploma and M.Sc. level, higher degrees by research and centres for interdisciplinary programmes.

Research Programmes

The Graduate School continues to expand the number and range of its graduate courses. The School of Medicine is actively expanding its research activity at St. James’s and Tallaght, including the establishment of the Institute for Molecular Medicine to include the John Durkan Institute for Leukaemia Research, the Dublin Molecular Medicine Centre, and the Institute of Cardiovascular Science. Its objectives include harnessing the resources available to its members to facilitate the creation of vibrant and international activity in areas such as Postgraduate Education and Training, Management and Funding of Research and Service Development and Consultancy.

Any surplus income from these activities will endow work consistent with the Institute’s objectives in the College and Teaching Hospitals. The Institute will enable its members to be more effective in achieving excellence and provides the services necessary to facilitate, support and encourage staff in College and the Teaching Hospitals to achieve the objectives they share. These include: Education & Training; Management and Funding of research; service Development and consultancy; and teaching facilities.
