The Country
The Republic of Ireland occupies the island of Ireland, except for six northern counties which compose Northern Ireland (Ulster), a part of the United Kingdom. The capital and largest city of the Republic is Dublin, which has one million inhabitants. Although Ireland has been historically one of Europe's poorest countries, since becoming a member of the European Union in 1973, it has begun to experience rapid economic growth and has attracted some of Europe's most dynamic companies.

The University
SUNY Oswego's summer research program in Dublin, Ireland is offered under the auspices of the University College Dublin School of Nursing, Midwifery, and Health Systems. Founded in 1851, UCD is the largest of the four universities which make up the Irish National university system. The celebrated author of Ulysses, James Joyce, was once a student at UCD.

The Program
This is a six week, 6-credit program open to all health science majors. Students will take a 6-credit course "Research for Nursing Practice", which introduces students to research methodologies and methods used in nursing and health care research.  The first two weeks will involve classwork while the following four weeks will involve research with an assigned mentor.  Research will be in one of the following areas:

  • Health systems and policy
  • Mental health
  • Pediatric health
  • Maternal health
  • Primary care and public health
  • Gerontology
  • Palliative care
  • Connected health
  • Clinical research
  • Quality improvement science/methodologies (e.g. LEAN methodologies)

Housing and Meals
Students will live in on-campus housing in a single room with a shared kitchen/living area. Students are responsible for their own meals and there is no meal plan option.
