Both graduates of the UCD School of Medicine, Dr Tiarnán Byrne and Dr Jamie Condren co-founded SimWars Ireland in the final year of their studies.

Having both spent a period of time on clinical placement abroad, they recognised the value of Simulation in consolidating clinical knowledge and skills as well as bridging the gap between theory and clinical practice.

They have been supported each year by an excellent group of undergraduate students from the hosting university who have contributed massively to the ongoing development and growth of the competition year on year. SimWars Ireland is hugely indebted to the students that allow the competition the continue each Spring.
