About the UCD Medicine Clinical Pathway
This adjunct academic appointment scheme recognises the contribution of our clinical faculty who lead or support both our teaching and our research programmes across our clinical training network. The School relies on clinicians within our affiliated teaching hospitals, acute, general and specialist hospitals and within primary care centres to deliver the clinical training component of our education programmes and to help drive our biomedical and clinical research programmes. We recognise that clinician engagement in University business is greatly facilitated by having a formal adjunct appointment. Hence in 2008, the School introduced the UCD Medicine Clinical Pathway scheme to provide formal university acknowledgement of these contributions to academic activities, recognising that many clinicians contribute strongly despite having no protected academic time.
