Trinity College’s School of Medicine, the country’s oldest medical school, as today formally moved to the university’s new Biomedical Sciences Institute on Pearse Street in Dulin.
The school, which pioneered medical education in Ireland in the 18th century, had been previously scattered across several buildings and annexes on the university’s original campus.
The college’s 1,250 undergraduate and postgraduatemedical students will now be taught under the one roof for the first time. Significantly, their tuition will take place in the same environment as some most advanced medical research in the country, affording students a first-hand experience of “the bench to bedside approach to research”.
The centre’s teaching equipment includes teaching laboratories with the latest technologies, 300-seat lecture theatres, seminar rooms and a specially designed anatomy dissection room with audio video equipment facilities to enhance the learning experience.
Funding of just over €21 million was provided for the school by the Higher Education Authority and the Department of Education and Skills.
