Dean's Report : Faculty of Health Sciences 2018-2019
One of the things I really look forward to at this time of year is releasing the annual Dean’s Report. This report has come to be a tradition for the Faculty of Health Sciences, and it serves as reminder to pause and recognize all of the fantastic things we’ve achieved in the past year.
This report holds particular significance as it will be the last that I publish before the end of my deanship in July 2020. And so I am pleased to share my last issue of the Dean’s Report, for 2018-2019 with you.
The pages of this year’s Dean’s Report are filled with stories of the outstanding work coming out of our Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Rehabilitation Therapy. All of the schools within the Faculty of Health Sciences share one vision: to ask questions, seek answers, advance care and inspire change. You’ll see in the enclosed pages that our faculty members, staff and students are doing just that, whether it is in research, education, or in the delivery of clinical care.
As you read through this year’s report, you’ll meet some of the changemakers who are working to make our faculty a more inclusive place to work and study. You’ll meet our talented researchers who are making discoveries that are improving the lives of patients. You’ll hear about the ground-breaking new programs that we’ve launched. You’ll also meet some of our exceptional students who are already making their marks as leaders in their communities.
Of course, behind the stories, statistics, and the many other successes that we share in this report are our tremendously dedicated faculty members, staff, students, partners, alumni, benefactors and friends. When you get to the last page of the report, you’ll read about the many things we have accomplished together over the past ten years, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have been a part of such a dedicated, hard-working team.
I hope that you enjoy this year’s Dean’s Report, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Please join me in congratulating everyone who contributed to our success in the past year by commenting on the blog, or better yet, drop by the Macklem House….my door is always open.
