Message from Professor Una Macleod, Dean
As the coronavirus situation continues to evolve, we remain focused on supporting our communities and keeping them safe.
Over recent months members of our community have come together to share knowledge, to collaborate and to support each other during what continue to be unprecedented times.
We have transitioned to remote working and online delivery and supported the progression of students across our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, We have ensured our research students and colleagues have been able to continue their research and advance improvements in healthcare – diagnosis, treatment and care. And we have also supported our Medicine graduates as they have entered the NHS workforce early.
Our Hull York Medical School community has also helped our wider communities – providing knowledge and support which is making a real difference to patients and their families during what we know are difficult circumstances.
Now more than ever before, our NHS needs confident, compassionate exceptional doctors who are able to provide research, knowledge and skills to tackle health challenges now and in the future.
We are committed to continuing to work with our NHS and University partners to inspire the next generation of health professionals and clinical and academic researchers and support them to make a real difference to patients.
Professor Una Macleod, Dean and GP
On Monday 4 January 2021 the UK Prime Minister announced a national lockdown in England lasting until at least mid-February. You can find out more about the new measures on the Government website.
Hull York Medical School, the University of Hull and the University of York, are continuing to operate during the national lockdown and will continue to deliver teaching for the academic year 2020-21 in line with Government guidance via blended delivery using a combination of online and in person teaching. Our University campuses remain open and continue to offer library and support services.
Updated arrangements for Spring Term
In line with the UK Government announcement confirming a national lockdown in England from 5 February 2020 and following guidance from the Department for Education for students returning to higher education for the Spring Term, we are making adjustments to our planned teaching activity for the Spring Term.
We ask that students remain where they currently are, whether in Hull or York or your home town, and not attempt to travel unless you need to come to Hull or York - either to access study facilities or for your mental or physical wellbeing. We will be providing further updates as soon as we can on these web pages and via Blackboard to students.
Please note that Medicine, Physician Associate and Clinical Anatomy/Clinical Anatomy and Education students are exempt from this guidance and should resume in person teaching/continue to attend clinical placement as planned.
We, together with our Universities, want to make sure students return to campus is as safe and as smooth as possible.
