Clinical Skills Centre Launch - 21 March 2018

Formerly the Clinical Skills Laboratory, the UCD School of Veterinary Medicine’s new Clinical Skills Centre (CSC) has been relocated to a larger space and is now based in the School building to allow easier access for all students, including those in the pre-clinical years.  The CSC is an important teaching and learning resource in the School – it’s designed to help Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Nursing students learn and improve their Day One Skills. 

The new CSC was officially opened by Professor Cecily Kelleher, College Principal, College of Health & Agricultural Sciences, on 21 March, with the Dean & Head of School, Professor Michael Doherty, and many of our colleagues in attendance.  Special thanks to Maire O’Reilly, the Clinical Skills Centre Manager and Renagh Kelly, Lecturer/Assistant Professor, CSC Academic Lead, for all of their hard work in preparing the CSC for the launch.  Thanks are also due to the Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Nursing students who helped with the set-up before the event and showcased some of the CSC skills to event attendees.
