Post-graduate Education

The future of healthcare depends on doctors who can practice at the nexus of healthcare and proteo-molecular bio-profiling.
Our “Level 5” MD-PhD academy program twinned with the Dana Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard University trains the clinician scientists of the future.

Haematology doctors in training take three years out of their clinical program to complete a PhD thesis. The goal is to train a generation of clinician-scientists who will be the medical innovators of the future.

So far we have funded and supervised 10 doctors through our MD-PhD program linked between Dublin and the Dana Farber Cancer institute, Harvard University, Boston.

We have also developed the Gerry Kelly Undergraduate Summer Studentship Program for medical students.

Our MD-PhD program is supported by Enterprise Ireland, the Irish Research Council, The Health Research Board, the Irish Cancer Society and pharmaceutical partners.
