Welcome to Public Health and Primary Care

Professor Joe Barry
Head of Discipline

Public Health & Primary Care is located in the Trinity College Centre for Health Sciences at Tallaght Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Public Health & Primary Care came into being with the establishment of the Chair of Social Medicine in 1952.  The establishment of the Chair recognised the contribution of the social environment to people's health or ill health, and the importance of informing and training medical students for delivery of health services in the community setting.
