Paediatric Academic Unit
The dedicated UCC Paediatric Academic Unit at Cork University Hospital is the first of its kind in Ireland and is the home of teaching and training for both undergraduate medical students and postgraduate paediatric and health discipline trainees. It is the only such fully integrated facility in the School of Medicine, where tomorrow’s doctors can see research-led healthcare both being both developed and delivered.
The Unit is a great step forward in providing modern, fit for purpose and comprehensive teaching, training, clinical and research space. It has been designed and developed to foster and encourage collaboration between clinicians, researchers, academics, industry, students, trainees, patients and their families to work together in improving children’s health. The Unit sits in an exceptional tri-location between Cork University Hospital, Cork University Maternity Hospital and University College Cork and is the new home for both UCC Paediatric Academic teaching and training and the Paediatric Clinical Research arm of the INFANT Centre.
The unit has a substantial footprint of over 700M2 covering 32 rooms: assessment rooms for clinical studies, seminar rooms, clinical skills rooms, tutorial rooms, offices and laboratory spaces.
