Official Launch of New Student Facilities, St Vincent’s University Hospital
The hospital setting has an integral role to play for our students in relation to their clinical education and training in Medicine and Surgery. UCD medical students undertake clinical training at St Vincent's University Hospital annually, rotating through medical and surgical specialties at the hospital and elsewhere within our clinical training network. During their clinical years from year 4 to 6 of their Degree Programme, students attend structured clinical training sessions at the hospital.
Following the Medical Grand Rounds on the 29th January, Prof Patrick Murray officially opened new student facilities at the Merrion Campus within the hospital. The new facilities, which include tutorial rooms and a clinical skills laboratory for specialised skills based training, will offer a comfortable, ultra-modern environment for all of our medical students during the course of their studies. The students can also avail of a beautifully refurbished Resident Room which is available to them 24/7.
Speaking at the launch, Prof Murray said
We are always keen to support our students as they navigate their way through their training. Ensuring that the various facilities available to students are of the highest possible standard is key to this and we endeavor to rise to the challenge and meet any related needs as and when they arise. I have no doubt that our students will utilise the new clinical skills laboratory and tutorial rooms to their fullest capacity and we are only too happy to deliver these facilities for them.
