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.

“Fear prophets ... and those prepared to die for the truth, for as a rule they make many others die with them, often before them, at times instead of them.”
—Umberto Eco (b. 1932)
“For every nineteenth-century middle-class family that protected its wife and child within the family circle, there was an Irish or a German girl scrubbing floors in that home, a Welsh boy mining coal to keep the home-baked goodies warm, a black girl doing the family laundry, a black mother and child picking cotton to be made into clothes for the family, and a Jewish or an Italian daughter in a sweatshop making ladies dresses or artificial flowers for the family to purchase.”
—Stephanie Coontz (20th century)
“There may perhaps be a new generation of doctors horrified by lacerations, infections, women who have douched with kitchen cleanser. What an irony it would be if fanatics continued to kill and yet it was the apathy and silence of the medical profession that most wounded the ability to provide what is, after all, a medical procedure.”
—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
