Surgery - Research

The Surgical Research Laboratory is located in the Lambe Institute for Translational Research on the campus of University Hospital Galway. The research team works closely with Saolta clinical colleagues, academic researchers in the Colleges of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, and national and international collaborators.

The Discipline offers supervision in several speciality areas, e.g., cancer, vascular, orthopaedics. To pursue a research degree, potential candidates should first discuss the matter with a relevant academic member of staff.

Entry requirements

PhD candidates should normally have a high honours standard in a relevant academic discipline at primary degree level or equivalent together with the support of an academic staff member who is approved by the College to supervise the research in terms of its nature and scope.

MD candidates should normally have a high honours standard in Medicine from NUI Galway or possess qualification deemed to be equivalent. Candidates shall be eligible to register onto the MD programme, three years after obtaining the Degree of Bachelor of Medicine. The application will also require support of an academic staff member who is approved by the College to supervise the research in terms of its nature and scope.

Additional entry requirements
Candidates may be required to submit a research proposal for consideration by the School as part of their application.
