The Irish Medical Times is an independent weekly newspaper for Irish physicians. It was founded in 1967 by John O'Connell, who went on to become the Minister for Health, and is the leading medical magazine in Ireland.
The paper contains news, features, clinical articles, interviews and opinion pieces and is regularly cited as a news source in the Irish national media.
Previous editors include Maureen Browne, Aindreas McEntee, Colin Kerr and Terence Cosgrave. The current editor of Irish Medical Times is Dara Gantly.
The paper runs the Irish Healthcare Awards each year in October — a highly prestigious event that takes place in the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin.
The Irish Medical Times won the Periodical Publishers' Association of Ireland's 'Website of the Year' award in December 2008.
Famous quotes containing the words times, irish and/or medical:
“These have been wonderful years. How many happy, happy times we have traveled about together! Day and night, in stage coaches, on freight trains, over the mountains and across the prairies, hungry and tired, we have wandered. The work was sometimes hard and discouraging but those were happy and useful years.”
—Susan B. Anthony (18201906)
“I hope you will not be washed away by the Irish sea.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“As we speak of poetical beauty, so ought we to speak of mathematical beauty and medical beauty. But we do not do so; and that reason is that we know well what is the object of mathematics, and that it consists in proofs, and what is the object of medicine, and that it consists in healing. But we do not know in what grace consists, which is the object of poetry.”
—Blaise Pascal (16231662)
