Welcome from Head of School
Welcome from the Head of School
On behalf of my colleagues within the School of Pharmacy, University
College Cork, I would like to welcome you to our website.
The School of Pharmacy was officially opened in 2003 and as one of the
newer Schools within the College of Medicine and Health (UCC), we are
fortunate to be located in the purpose built Cavanagh School of
Pharmacy which boasts state-of -the-art teaching and research
facilities for students and staff alike.
Pharmacy is both the science and the ability to prepare and dispense
medicines. Pharmacists are health professionals who incorporate
health sciences with chemical/pharmaceutical sciences with the
ultimate goal of delivering safe and effective medicines to patients.
In October 2013, I took over as both Chair of Clinical Pharmacy
Practice and Head of School. My goals for the future of the School are
to develop on the research and teaching strengths established in the
last 10 years and to develop and lead on the implementation of an
integrated MPharm curriculum here in UCC.
