Kathryn Neville, College of Medicine & Health

In this new initiative, we honour those UCC Heroes who have made an exceptional, if hidden contribution to the university community, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Next up, is Kathryn Neville, College Manager, Medicine and Health.

Kathryn was nominated by Dr Ger Culley. Here, he tells us why he nominated Kathryn.

“As College Manager in Medicine and Health, Kathryn has been forefront in a number of projects of high impact to UCC and the community throughout the pandemic;

  • Kathryn has been involved in the HSE moves into the various UCC campus locations, in the Erinville, in Brookfield, and in the Boole Basement
  • Kathryn acted as an invigilator for the Medicine exams held on campus in April, ensuring our new doctors were able to join the frontline response
  • Kathryn was part of the Continuity Team, making sure that all the M&H exams took place online and were safely managed, including online conferrings
  • In her spare time, Kathryn was the UCC lead, managing the setup of Cork's primary contact tracing centre in the Boole Basement

Her energy and commitment to service for the university and our broader community in a time of crisis was an inspiration to all those around her.”
