In Cork University Hospital we pride ourselves in the commitment of our staff to deliver safe, high quality care to the many patients we treat every year. We do this using the exceptional skills and talents of our professional staff whose daily commitment is exemplary. The Hospital also has a mission in relation to teaching of many professional staff among them doctors who are in training numbering 400 at any time.

We care about our staff and recognise that we have obligations to ensure that, while training in our Hospital, we must afford them every opportunity to get the very best training possible in an environment that treats each patient or staff member as a valued individual.

In developing a Charter of Rights for Doctors in Training, the Executive Management Board are committed to fostering a culture in which doctors in training are valued as part of the team delivering safe patient care and where there is a commitment to support their development in terms of continuous education and management support, in an environment of equality and dignity at work.
