Chris NorburyProfessor Chris Norbury (Sir William Dunn School of Pathology and The Queen’s College) has been appointed to the position of Deputy Director of Pre-clinical Studies. Chris has taken over from Professor David Vaux who was recently appointed to be Associate Head of Division (Education). Chris will have overall responsibility for admissions to the six-year medical course, as well as assisting Dr Jeremy Taylor (Director of Pre-clinical Studies) with the management of teaching and examinations for medical students in Years 1-3 of the course.  

Professor Norbury said: "I'm excited to have this opportunity to contribute more widely to medical education across the University. The fact that our six-year course is widely regarded as the best of its kind in the world is no reason for complacency, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to improve it still further. Our success is due in part to the rigorous admissions process that has evolved under the leadership of my predecessors, to the point where it is often held up as a shining example of how efficient and fair such processes can be.  At the same time, it's clear that we could do even more to identify and attract applications from candidates who stand to benefit most from the course, and who have the potential to become the very best doctors and clinician scientists of the future."
