Dawn Deacy
Drug Delivery Team

Dawn is a medical doctor with a background in science. Prior to studying medicine she completed a BSc in honours mathematics in NUI Galway. After taking time to travel, she returned to obtain a medical degree from The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 2013. Since then, she has gained her surgical membership to The Royal College of Surgeons and has over seven years of clinical experience. She completed her Basic Surgical Training and went on to become a specialist registrar in paediatric surgery. In search of a new adventure, she travelled to Central and South America and was fortunate to become a volunteer doctor on a number of hikes and treks in countries including Guatemala and Peru. The most rewarding experience was as a volunteer for the not for profit organisation, Kilimanjaro Achievers, where along with other healthcare professionals, she assisted in caring for a group of teenagers with scoliosis during their summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Since her return, she has been working as a paediatric cardiothoracic registrar while graduating with a specialist diploma from NUI Galway in medical device science. When not working, she can be found attempting to climb a not-so-high mountain, trying her hand at woodwork and hoping to squeeze back into her ballet shoes from a decade ago!
