PhD Summer School

In June 2016, the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems held a pilot PhD Summer School in conjunction with Duquesne University School of Nursing.

Four faculty and ten PhD students attended classes at the Action Research Colloquium which happened just at the end of the Summer School. The School held a PhD seminar with visiting faculty and PhD nursing students from Duquesne University (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania).

UCD students and faculty were invited to present their work thus far and have the opportunity to see what peer nursing students are engaging in for their PhD studies. The seminar commenced on 28th June 2016 in UCD and presented an excellent opportunity for peer learning as well as sharing each person's PhD journey.

If you are interested in attending the PhD Summer School in June 2017, please email Dr. Amanda Phelan ( with the subject heading Summer PhD Seminar.
