Student Health Centre at IT Tallaght
Our Student Health Centre has recently been refurbished, the space has new flooring, lighting and has been painted throughout. This has helped to create a fresh new look and comfortable space for all our attending students. A big thank you goes to John Heaney, Buildings Manager who project managed the upgrade between Semesters with minimal disruption to our students. Some other new developments in the Health Centre is the introduction of a new medical database. This will eventually store all student medical records on an online secure IS system, ensuring speedier access to patient results and more streamlined communications with hospitals, referrals etc.
Thanks to all involved.
We offer a professional health care to all registered students of the Institute. Encouraging a pro-active approach to health, the emphasis on Health Awareness and Promotion for the student population.
