UCD Medicine Clinical Pathway Now Open
The School is pleased to announced that the 2017/2018 UCD Medicine Clinical Pathway is now open for applications. Closing Date for submission of applications to Section Leaders is Wednesday 28th February 2018.
The School is highly dependent on clinicians within our affiliated acute, general and specialist teaching hospitals and within primary care centres to deliver the clinical training component of our education programmes and to help drive our biomedical and clinical research programmes.
We know that clinician engagement in University business is greatly facilitated by having a formal adjunct appointment. Hence in 2008, the School introduced the UCD Medicine Clinical Pathway scheme to provide formal university acknowledgement of these contributions to academic activities, recognising that many clinicians contribute strongly despite having no protected academic time.
Now in its eleventh year, the highly successful adjunct appointment scheme aims to recognise the contribution of clinical staff to our academic programmes. There have been almost 1,000 applications for appointment or promotion under the scheme with over current 500 adjunct staff appointments.
We welcome applications from those who contribute to UCD teaching and/or research or who perform a significant clinical leadership role in Irish healthcare.
