Dr Clare Keaveney Jimenez, SpR, CUH.
A warm welcome on a blustery November evening to the UCC Anaesthesiology Newsletter.
In this edition, we celebrate Consultant Anaesthesiologist Dr Anita Griffith’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the Mercy University Hospital. Anyone who has had the pleasure of working with Dr Griffith will agree that such an award is more than well-deserved. Those of us who have trained with Dr Griffith aspire to emulate her qualities in our everyday practice.
Our social highlights include a Halloween-themed “Coffee and a Gas” gathering and we also wish our colleagues well who have been appointed to new roles at home and abroad.
As the dark evenings draw in, the annual Cork “Run in the Dark” never fails to brighten the city up as hundreds don their Hi-Vis attire. Among the sea of runners this year were teams from the CUH and the MUH Anaesthesiology Departments. The international “Run in the Dark” initiative was established by Irish athlete Mark Pollock in 2010 to promote his organisation “Collaborative Cures”.
I hope that you enjoy browsing this edition. As always, we welcome submissions from all UCC-affiliated Anaesthesiology departments and from readers in Ireland and beyond.Read more
