Population Health and Health Services

We aim to understand health, diseases and their determinants, and to develop methodological approaches for population health research. This involves researchers, with a diverse range of backgrounds and specialities, analysing the current issues affecting human health and health services from different perspectives.

Our impact

Pioneering research is being carried out as we bring together clinicians, pharmacists, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, biologists and public health professionals with a common objective of understanding, safeguarding and improving the health of human populations and individuals through education, cooperation and research.

Patient-focused research

Researchers at the School of Population Health seek to better understand and address the complex and ever-changing barriers to better health, in Ireland and globally. The School builds on the University’s legacy of impact in population and public health, which can be traced back to the 1840s when Sir Charles Cameron, former RCSI President, campaigned to improve public health in Dublin.
