Research & Education

Research is inextricably linked to education and learning. Not only does it help students to improve diagnostic and clinical reasoning, but it also enhances their analytical and creative brain, contributing to a solution-focused mindset.

The National Orthopaedic Hospital Cappagh is Ireland’s primary elective orthopaedic hospital and a centre of excellence in orthopaedic medicine. The Hospitals’ unique setting provides an idyllic learning environment where students can attain the skills and knowledge required to become great practitioners and orthopaedic surgeons.

We believe that nurse education is a lifelong commitment and a well-educated workforce leads to better patient outcomes. We offer accredited courses for nurses wishing to develop their knowledge, expertise and leadership skills, offering a Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing (Orthopaedic Nursing), a Professional Certificate in Musculoskeletal Casting & Splinting (Adults and Children) and Day Courses in Basic Casting Techniques.
