Changes to the Faculty's academic organisational structure from 2019/20
The Faculty of Medicine launched a new departmental structure from 1 August 2019. The new departmental structure has been created by the Dean of the Faculty (Professor Jonathan Weber) to enable individual departments to better develop and promote their unique strengths and to ensure effective, clear and consistent approaches to supporting activity and collaboration across the Faculty.
Through the new departmental structure the Faculty will work to: widen academic engagement in the running of the Faculty; deliver strategic development in key areas of our science; drive forward on the opportunities which exist across Imperial for health-related science and translational collaboration; provide greater support for development of new opportunities in research and education; develop recognition, support and development opportunities throughout the organisation.
From August 2019 the Faculty now comprises eight academic departments:
|Department||Head of Department|
|Department of Surgery and Cancer||Professor George Hanna|
|School of Public Health||Professor Deborah Ashby|
|National Heart and Lung Institute||Professor Edwin Chilvers|
|Institute of Clinical Sciences||Professor Dame Amanda Fisher|
|Department of Infectious Disease (new)||Professor Wendy Barclay|
|Department of Immunology and Inflammation (new)||Professor Marina Botto|
|Department of Brain Sciences (new)||Professor Paul Matthews|
|Department of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction (new)||Professor Mark Thursz|
The former Department of Medicine ceased to exist on 1 August 2019 onwards. The figure below provides a high level overview of the transition from the current to the new departmental structure
Further information on these Faculty developments is available for Faculty of Medicine staff on the Faculty’s staff pages (log-in).
