Student Health Unit

Providing medical care to regsitered students of GMIT in a confidential and professional manner

GMIT Health

The Student Health Unit provides an acute illness/emergency service - through a 'walk in' system where a Triage Nurse will provide an initial assessment and make a Doctor's appointment for you, if necessary.

Emergencies are dealt with by the nurses throughout the day.

If you have a pre-existing medical condition that may affect your studies in college, you are advised to register with the Student Health Unit on commencement in GMIT.

If you have an on-going medical condition, you should also continue to attend your own doctor.

If you are not a 'local' student and have a Medical Card (GMS), you should consider registering with a local GP on commencement in GMIT.
