Welcome from Head of College

‌Since 1849 University College Cork holds a long and proud history of Medical Education. The College of Medicine and Health is one of four Colleges in the University and provides future medical and health professionals with a world-class, student-centred education, based on knowledge, informed by research and with an awareness of societal needs.

Our College is the most comprehensive in the Country; it provides programmes in Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing and Midwifery, Public Health and Health Promotion, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Hearing Science and Pharmacy. It is large in scale, with an international focus on the diverse needs and of disciplines mirroring today’s complex integrated healthcare systems. We are the primary academic partner to nine hospitals in the South/South West region of Ireland.

World-class standards and a strong tradition of excellence and leadership in all clinical disciplines give our students and academics the tools they need to develop to the highest calibre. We look to them to help us build the future, effect change and herald a new culture, a new philosophy and a new era in healthcare.

We are committed to continually linking brilliant minds, cutting edge technologies, excellence in teaching and research, all of which take place in a stimulating and challenging environment.

On behalf of my colleagues, I would like to welcome you to the College of Medicine and Health.
