In addition, the main teaching hospital sites provide career advice sessions during the intern teaching on application in Ireland and overseas.

UCD School of Medicine Social Media Guide (April 2021) 


This Guide is for all School employees and students and is also applicable to the wider alumni community, when the individual is aligned to the School, via their social media profile(s).

The aim of the Guide is to promote appropriate behaviour and etiquette and maintain professional standards on social media, especially given the proliferation of social media as a key communications platform in all of our lives.

In this regard, please note the following data;

  • There were 3.79 million social media users in Ireland in Jan 2021
  • The number of social media users in Ireland increased by 110 thousand (+3.1%) between 2020 and 2021
  • The number of social media users in Ireland was equivalent to 76.4% of the total population in Jan 2021


Please also kindly that this Social Media Guide has been compiled as a ‘Guide’ rather than any kind of official ‘Policy.’ We are also keen to position this Guide as a live and dynamic document that can be updated as required with reference to future developments in internet capability and social media usage.
