Research & Education at CUMH



Research is an important part of continually improving our practice and service. Here in Cork University Maternity Hospital we are committed to supporting ongoing research for the possible benefit of mother and baby. We may ask you to take part in a research study. It is not compulsory for you to participate but we would greatly appreciate it.

Teaching Students

CUMH provides valuable clinical training to medical, midwifery, general and public health nursing, physiotherapy and social work students as part of their university course. We will introduce the students to you and explain why they are present. We regard this teaching role as an investment for the next generation. However, you may decline to be observed or attended to by students without affecting your treatment.
