The School of Health Sciences offers a superb learning environment that enables students to fulfil their potential and ensures our graduates are fit for practice in the modern and ever-changing health and social care sector
Welcome to UEA and the School of Health Sciences.
I take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Dean of School for Health Sciences (HSC) in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
As we commence a new academic year, may I take this opportunity to welcome all of you, as incoming new students. I do look forward to getting to know you during the coming year.
We are embarking into unknown territory, in terms of a political landscape. Yet, I can guarantee the work ahead in HSC continues at a pace. The School has successfully revalidated, in line with new professional standards, many of our undergraduate programmes. The postgraduate portfolio is continuing to expand into new Masters and a professional doctorate programme that aims to suit external workforce demands across contemporary health and social care services. We hope that you will benefit and grow throughout these innovative new programmes.
What a great platform from which to commence my role as Dean of School for HSC. I am very excited at the prospect of learning about the impact and implications of working in such a vibrant community here at UEA. I hope the whole experience will provide opportunities for us all to expand our knowledge, skills and expertise, promoting improved health and wellbeing for all.
I aim to hold several ‘drop in’ sessions throughout the year. Do email me to book an appointment to discuss potential ideas, and ways to collaborate that will help me identify priority areas plus what we can have cause to celebrate.
Wishing you all the very best in your studies this forthcoming year, and beyond.
Professor Sally Hardy
Dean of the School of Health Sciences
