Our People

A Community of Scientists and Innovators

We are much more than a just a medical school. We are a community of researchers, scientists, clinicians, students and graduates – committed in our dedication to society and determined in our mission to improve the lives and the health of our patients. We teach, research and deliver healthcare in Ireland and across the world.

Community, Friendship & Support

Our courses are delivered to more than 1,600 undergraduate and 450 graduate students, but despite the scale of our operations, our reputation is for placing community, friendship and student support at the centre of our educational approach.  We are driven not just by the desire to provide our students with the best possible programmes but also by a belief that the health professionals of tomorrow benefit from a supportive, collegial environment, in which extra-curricular talents and interests can thrive alongside academic excellence.

Diverse, International Campus

Our student population comprises more than 50 nationalities, and international students now account for one-third of the total undergraduate student cohort. This diversity is one of the defining features of life at UCD, and one that enriches the student experience by delivering of a truly international campus.
