Hi, my name is Sorcha Dolan! I am currently studying my Professional Masters of Education at Dublin City University, I have also completed a Bachelor degree in Microbiology from Trinity College Dublin. I’ve always had a general interest in science, specifically Biology and Mathematics.
I am applying for a STEM Teacher internship as a way to gain more industry experience and to develop and gain new skills. I will be able to pass knowledge gained through this programme onto senior cycle classes who are trying to decide what to do/study after they finish secondary school. I will also be able to gain new/ develop pre-existing transferable skills which I can use to aid the progression of my teaching career.
MSD Ireland is one of the country’s leading healthcare companies, having first established here over 50 years ago. In order to understand MSD Ireland, it’s important to get a sense of the Irish pharmaceutical industry and the pivotal role it plays in Ireland’s economy as a whole.
We currently employ approximately 2,700 employees, across six sites in Ballydine, Co Tipperary, Brinny, Co Cork, Carlow, Dunboyne and Dublin and, in addition, operate substantial Human Health and Animal Health businesses.
Significantly our Irish sites manufacture approximately half of MSD’s top twenty products, saving and enhancing lives in over sixty countries around the world.
