Message from Professor Michael Doherty, Dean & Head of School

A chairde, cuireann sé gliondar croí orm an ceathrú nuachtlitir a chur i láthair.  

Dear colleagues, I am delighted to introduce our 4th Alumni Newsletter. Imíonn an t-am - time flies and the past year has seen some exciting developments in the UCD School of Veterinary Medicine, with the  opening of our new Clinical Skills Centre, the installation of state-of-the-art computed tomography (CT) for both equine and small animal patients in the Veterinary Hospital, as well as the announcement of a major development of the small animal wing of our hospital, which will include suites for oncology, neurology and animal rehabilitation. We are also delighted to report that the UCD School of Veterinary Medicine is now proudly ranked 24th in the world in the latest QS World University Subject Ranking and veterinary science sits as the highest QS World University-ranked subject both in UCD and in Ireland.
