Leonardo DaVinci’s ‘Vitruvian Man’ is a recognised symbol of the symmetry inherent in the universe. The canon of proportions puts our world in context with a concept which began with Protagoras’ declaration that “man is the measure of all things”. At UCD we provide the right fit for medical trainees.
