Professor Trevor Duffy

Prof Trevor duffy talks about the importance of mentors and good professional relationships in the lastest episode of ‘Irish Medical Lives’

Professor Trevor Duffy, Consultant Rheumatologist at Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown in Dublin, is one of the best known ‘medical politicians’ of his generation, having started his political career as an NCHD during the health service disputes of the late 1990s and risen through the ranks to become President of the Irish Medical Organisation, in 2014.

In this episode, the remarkably self-deprecating physician recalls his early years in Kilmacud and a small rural town in Iran, his time as the first Chief Resident in St Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin and then Chef de Clinique in Geneva’s University Hospital, and his serendipitous route through an MBA to becoming Director of Healthcare Leadership at the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland.

En route, we hear about the importance of mentors and good professional relationships, the vital role of teamwork, and the necessity of ‘dust-gathering reports’.

Describing himself as a bit of a contrarian, he offers a case for following ‘the road less travelled’ (to Europe) and remembers how a ‘can-do’ attitude led to his transforming a hospital bathroom into an elegant office, with a little help from family and friends.
