Message from the Dean

Queen’s Health Sciences is a remarkable faculty. Our success is a product of the initiative and action of our students, faculty, and staff, and of the collaboration across schools, faculties, and our partnering institutions, that is the hallmark of our academic health sciences centre. Our success is also augmented with the support of our alumni, and our partners in the private and public sectors.

One of the unique strengths of the Faculty of Health Sciences is that its structure encompasses the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Rehabilitation Therapy. In May 2012, we published a new strategic framework for our three schools that affirmed a unified vision: ask questions, seek answers, advance care, inspire change.

Our new vision informs all of our initiatives: research, education, patient care and how we work with our faculty, students, practitioners, staff, alumni, benefactors, and the public and private sectors.

The Queen’s Initiative Campaign is an important moment, where our community can come together to support the most important priorities for our faculty, which will advance our faculty, inspire our people, and enable our vision.

The Faculty of Health Sciences is proud of the tradition where alumni classes celebrating milestone reunions raise funds for the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Rehabilitation Therapy.
