The School of Medicine at the University of Galway
The School of Medicine at University of Galway is one of three Schools at the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. We have a tradition of excellence in teaching for over 175 years. We have a wide and varied range of postgraduate programmes aimed, with clinical and non-clinical options. Our community is research focused and our impact and partnerships are truly global. We connect and partner with community organisations, both locally, nationally and internationally. Our School has been awarded the Athena Swan Bronze Award.
The University is committed to providing the most up-to-date facilities and resources for the study of medicine and health sciences at our Galway campus. An energetic building programme is underway, with new buildings coming on stream to accommodate new programmes and expanding enrolments.
Building for the Future
We have developed Medical Academies for Teaching and Research in Sligo, Letterkenny, Mayo and Ballinasloe.
The construction of a €40 million Human Biology building on campus was completed in Autumn 2016.
The recently completed Clinical and Translational Research Facility adjacent to the Clinical Science Institute was jointly funded by the University, the Health Research Board and the Health Services Executive.
