Paediatric Society is open to all medical and non-medical NUI Galway students. The Society's overall aims are to increase early student exposure to Paediatrics, including its unique learning requirements. We wish to provide a forum for discussion on relevant and topical Paediatric issues. We aim to encourage Paediatrics as a career and provide information regarding different pathways and the subspecialties within Paediatrics. For those who aren't studying in a medical course, there is opportunity to volunteer and to provide a service to the local community via the Healthy Heroes Initiative which teaches primary aged kids the importance of Nutrition.
