About the Irish Student Health Association

The Irish Student Health Association (ISHA) is an organisation which serves as a forum in which members can discuss matters relevant to the provision, quality and effective management of student health care in Ireland.

It provides the opportunity to share ideas, discuss issues of common interest, and communicate best practice in relation to student health. Our members are drawn from the many different professions which contribute to medical care in the specialist field of third level education. 

At present our members are doctors, nurses and administrators. The Doctors group of the Irish Student Health Association is known as DASH and consists of all doctors ( GP's) involved in health services in Third Level Education in Ireland. The Nurses Association is known as NASH and represents the nurses working in student health in Ireland. 

Membership of our organisation is free. Member are provided with email updates as well as website access. Members are also eligible to attend the annual conference and study days. Please contact irishstudenthealth@gmail.com if you would like to become a member.
