The University of East Anglia has approved changes to the names of both the Faculty of Health and the School of Medicine Health Policy and Practice. The new names will be , respectively, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Norwich Medical School. The names of the other schools in the Faculty, the School of Allied Health Professions and the School of Nursing and Midwifery, remain unchanged.
Professor Ian Harvey, executive dean, said, “The Faculty’s reputation for teaching and research excellence has grown hugely in the last few years and the new faculty name describes more accurately what we do and, in particular, acknowledges the profile of medicine in the faculty.” He continued, “The new name for our medical school – Norwich Medical School - follows a more traditional model of a medical school name by incorporating our home city in the title, while we still retain the brand values of UEA. We also want to align the School’s name more closely with the Norwich Research Park (NRP) to reinforce the collaborative nature and excellence of our coordinated research programmes. And we plan to include ‘Norwich’ within the brand of our new Clinical Academic Initiative, our major new research collaboration with the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals and the NRP. So it makes sense to align the school’s name accordingly.”
The faculty will be starting to use the new names from now on, however, the process of change will take until August 2011 when the new names will be officially adopted. The changes have no implications for applicants or for anybody attending a course at the Faculty.
