A Global Reputation, Shaped by Our Graduates

Our reputation has been 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. We strive to maintain a strong connection with our alumni across the globe with the assistance of the UCD Development & Alumni Relations and the UCD Medical Graduates Association (MGA).

Annual Reunions

The highlight of our alumni interaction is the annual Alumni Reunion MGA Alumni Reunion Gala DinnerCelebration for Medicine classes who graduated 60, 55, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20 and 10 years ago. The event comprises a daytime Symposium of alumni talks (CPD lectures) followed by an elegant Gala Dinner in the evening. 

The 2024 reunion was a resounding success, bringing together alumni from various graduating classes in a memorable celebration.

A Class Representative's Reflections on the Class of '98 Reunion

"Our class were a funny lot. We seemed to rather like each other for the most part. Dr Cathy Brogan

When it came to organising our (rather ludicrously I felt, I mean how could it be?) 25th class Reunion, the concept of one of us becoming the Class Rep was mooted quietly on our Class WhatsApp group, and in an unlikely moment of humility I acquiesced. 

After the event I am exceedingly pleased to advocate for the role of future Class Representatives given my wholly positive position as same in 2023. The rekindling of so many old relationships - which really were not so repressed and lay just under the surface - was a wonderful and unexpected joy. There was a definite experience of regression, as though we were still in those heady Clinical Res years. The reconnection with colleagues via the Reunion, personally and professionally, has been a hugely positive experience and one which I encourage all to embrace.

We, the UCD Medical Alumni are a lucky lot, with an amazing UCD Alumni Team doing all the ground work and organisation. 

My only suggestion is that if your year doesn’t already have a graduation year WhatsApp (or similar platform) group is to start one…it will gather moss quickly."

Dr Cathy Brogan, MB BCh BAO graduating class of 1998
