School of Medicine merger

On 1 August 2020 the School of Medicine and the School of Primary, Community and Social Care merge together into one School of Medicine.

This will generate many advantages, including the reputational enhancement which will come from bringing together a school with very strong multidisciplinary research and educational portfolios and another with excellent educational metrics, and the improved student experience that will result.

Professor Christian Mallen will lead the newly formed school as the Head of School. He said that he is looking forward to “realising the many positive benefits that the merger will bring”.
