The College has established the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to enhance the oversight and practice of the 18 medicine specialties in Ireland. The Institute of Medicine now represents the largest spectrum of medical specialties in this country, with over 1,000 trainees and consultant trainers. “I am delighted to launch the Institute of Medicine,” said Prof Anthony O’Regan, Dean, Institute of Medicine. “This new governance structure will represent the interests of over 1,000 trainee doctors and consultant trainers in adult clinical medicine in Ireland. It builds on the remarkable tradition in RCPI of promoting excellence in the practice and education of physicians for nearly 400 years.” Pictured at the recent launch of the Institute (L-R) are Dr Terry McWade, CEO RCPI; Prof O’Regan, Foundation Dean; Prof Mary Horgan, President, RCPI; and Prof Ed McKone, Director of Training, IOM.
