Celebrating Our Distinguished Graduates

Our reputation is established by the many graduates who have practiced medicine and radiography with distinction in Ireland and across the world since the School's foundation in 1854.  Some have returned to their alma mater with great experience ; Others hold leadership positions in other great medical schools and health systems.

We strive to maintain a strong connection with our alumni across the globe and are supported in this ambition by UCD Development & Alumni Relations and the UCD Medical Graduates Association.
