Vice President (Health)

The post of Vice President (Health) will be elevated to a College-wide role and will become the sole focus of Professor Dermot Kelleher FMedSci, who currently also serves as Dean of the Faculty of Medicine.

Professor Kelleher’s new remit as Vice President (Health) will be to support and grow the multidisciplinary approach to improving health across all of the College’s academic disciplines, and to develop strong external support and relationships for these efforts, with both international and domestic institutions. He will engage with healthcare partners in identifying new models of health care with particular emphasis on using data sciences in new and innovative ways. He will report directly to the President and will become a member of the Executive Group of the President’s Board.

As a result of the elevated role of Vice President (Health), a new Dean of the Faculty of Medicine will be appointed to lead the Faculty’s management and academic processes. The Dean shall report to Imperial’s Provost, Professor James Stirling CBE FRS, and will join the President’s Board, the Provost’s Board and the College Council. The changes will become effective upon the appointment of the new Dean.
