Message from Professor Michael Doherty, Dean & Head of School

Dear Colleagues,

Mí na Bealtaine – tús an tsamhraidh.  The month of May heralds the beginning of summer and in typical fashion, glorious sunshine coincides with the UCD examination period.

I am very pleased to introduce our 8th Alumni Newsletter as Dean of a School of Veterinary Medicine that continues to flourish. Veterinary Science sits proudly as the highest global QS-ranked discipline in UCD and the School is delighted to have received the Athena SWAN Bronze Award.  This summer, we look forward with great anticipation to our graduation ceremony, the veterinary hospital conference and our celebration of veterinary sporting achievement; more detail on all of which, you will find in this newsletter.

Very best wishes / le gach dea-ghuí

Michael
