UCD School of Medicine is committed to creating an environment where equality, diversity and inclusion is paramount and everyone is treated fairly regardless of gender, age, race, disability, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, civil status, family status or membership of the travelling community. We are proud holders of an Athena SWAN Bronze Department Award, in recognition of our commitment to gender equality, diversity and inclusion.
