Entry Requirements

This multidisciplinary programme is offered to health and social care professionals or administrators, currently working in a primary care setting. Entry usually follows sucessful completion of the one-year Postgraduate Diploma in Primary Care or Clinical Primary Care (see www.nuigalway.ie/courses/taught-postgraduate-courses/primary-care.html and www.nuigalway.ie/courses/taught-postgraduate-courses/clinical-primary-care.html). Applications may also be considered from others with relevant educational background and experience. Selection is based on academic record and congruence of the thesis proposal with expertise and capacity for supervision within the Discipline of General Practice (although proposals are welcomed in any area of primary health care). All applicants should contact the Course Director in relation to this.
