Welcome to the Faculty of Health Sciences
Professor Mary McCarron, Dean
Every era of health and health care has had its challenges and the schools within our Faculty have been at the forefront of Ireland's responses to those challenges. The current era is dominated by budgets and cutbacks, so our schools strive to develop creative responses to health challenges, often by finding new ways to work smarter and deliver the best quality of care despite fewer resources. Solutions lie in looking beyond our individual disciplines, and in building interdisciplinary relationships that will make the difference.
As a faculty we are about the highest quality of care being offered to each individual; about the pursuit of research to find new solutions to complex health concerns; about translating the results of research to improve bedside care, manage risk factors, prevent disease, ease convalescence and maintain quality of life; and about always seeing the individual as more than disease and symptoms. We stand up to meet health challenges and to contribute to the excellence and traditions of Trinity College Dublin and of the Schools of the Faculty of Health Sciences.
