Recruiting new staff
More than £2million has been invested in a major recruitment drive to significantly increase expert clinical input into teaching and curriculum development. New Professional Services staff have also been recruited in key areas such as communications, data analysis and learning technology.
This investment has resulted in the creation of a large number of new clinical and academic leadership posts, augmenting School’s leadership structures. Recruitment began in early 2018, with interest received from over 300 clinical colleagues, both within the Faculty and in our partner NHS Trusts, who all expressed their eagerness to contribute to the programme.
With the recruitment programme now complete, these subject-experts will ensure that the School’s teaching reflects both academic understanding and care in practice, across the extensive range of specialist and primary care disciplines.
Specially identified leadership will also support academic delivery in new curriculum themes, such as design and technology in healthcare and personalised medicine.
