Award of Honorary and Visiting Titles

The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) values highly the contribution made to its teaching, research and scholarly activity programmes by clinicians and other individuals who are not employed by either the University of Hull or the University of York but are employed within the NHS or other medical, academic, research or similar organisation.

The conferment of an honorary or visiting title recognises the part that these individuals play in ensuring high quality, current and effective delivery across the entire spectrum of academic activity within HYMS.

To apply for an Honorary title with HYMS please refer to the policy where you will find guidance on the expectations of honorary or visiting title holders and the criteria for determining the award of honorary titles. 

Application is online and by invitation, initiated by a collaborator or sponsor from within HYMS. For Honorary teaching titles please contact your local Student Liaison Officer in the first instance.
