‘ACADEMIC HEALTH SCIENCE SYSTEM – Examples of collaboration across UCD & IEHG

The UCD Health Affairs AHSS Grant aims to enhance the collaboration between IEHG, its affiliated community healthcare organisations, and UCD CHAS. We aim to raise awareness of UCD Health Affairs and to foster synergies between UCD CHAS, UCD Health Affairs, IEHG and its affiliated community areas.

The AHSS Grant is to support health and science-related research or educational/innovation projects that clearly will enhance the concept of an AHSS and that will align with key College/School research and/or education strategic objectives.

The IEHG NDPT UCD Grand Rounds webinar hosted by Prof Tim Lynch, Vice Principal for UCD Health Affairs & Chief Academic Officer IEHG and NDTP Training Leads Dr Tomás Breslin & Dr Shane O'Hanlon took place on 30th June 2023 with presentations from AHSS Grant Awardees.
