The HMI is delighted that Dr. Cathal O’Donnell will present to the Southern Region later this month. A medical graduate of University College Cork, Cathal completed his Emergency Medicine training in a number of Irish hospitals in Cork and Dublin, and subsequently completed a Clinical Fellowship in Emergency Medical Services at the University of Toronto in 2005. This involved working with both Toronto EMS and the Ontario Air Ambulance Base Hospital Programme.

On completion of this, he returned to Ireland to take up a post as Consultant in Emergency Medicine at the then Mid-Western Regional Hospital Limerick.

Cathal became NAS Medical Director in 2011, initially on secondment from his hospital post – he moved permanently to NAS in 2013.

Also in 2013, Cathal was appointed Adjunct Senior Clinical Lecturer at the Graduate Entry Medical School, University of Limerick.

We look forward to welcoming him.
