dotMD is a celebration of the future and the heart of medicine. It is in its fifth year and is curated by Dr. Ronan Kavanagh, Dr. Muiris Houston and Dr. Alan Coss..
dotMD’s mission is to expose healthcare professionals to ideas that take place at the interface of medicine, technology and the humanities.
In doing so we intend to inspire and reinvigorate them, and reawaken in them a sense of fun and curiosity about medicine.
