B.Sc. Degree in Sterile Services Managment
Now accepting applications to the B.Sc. Degree in Sterile Services Managment (Day Release Educational Program)
Dear IDI

Mr. John Behan, Head of the Department of Applied Science at the Institute of Technology Tallaght Dublin, has directed me to announce to staff within Irish hospitals that the Institute is now accepting applications for entry onto The B.Sc. Degree in Sterile Services Management.

This is a three year program of study that provides staff with the opportunity to gain a valued accredited degree without significant disruption to work rosters. The degree equips staff in key areas of contamination control and the validation of high level disinfection and sterilization technologies, providing a firm educational foundation in the microbiology water systems and other utilities, the validation of medical device decontamination and quality assurance protocols as applied to the Irish Hospital Sector. The program is ideally suited to the continual professional development requirements of hospital employers and is extremely beneficial to staff interested up-skilling and those interested in progressing into supervisory management roles.

The first year program will be delivered on site in our lecture halls and laboratories at the Institute of Technology from September 28th and subsequently, every second week there after, over two academic terms (Semesters). The first Semester commences on September 28th and ends in mid-December, and would require staff to attend on a day release basis, every Thursday. The second Semester commences in February until early May 2018, again running every second Thursday of the months involved. Some modules will also be delivered on-line.

We would be pleased if you would notify your staff of this exciting development. For further information please contact Dr. Gerard Colleran at the Institute of Technology via email at
and by telephone at With sincere thanks and best wishes to all at the IDI.
Gerard
