MSc in Primary Care Open Evening

An open evening for our new MSc in Primary Care programmes will take place on Wednesday 12th February 2020 from 7-9pm in C006, UCD Health Sciences Centre.

Both programmes are designed to accommodate the clinical constraints of GP's in practice and are delivered by experienced general practitioners and clinical subject experts.  A number of progression points allow exit with Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma awards and the modular nature of these programmes support continuous professional development.

The evening will feature short talks by core faculty and give an opportunity to prospective students to meet faculty and learn more about the programmes.
