It is with regret to announce the departure of Prof L Green-Thompson as the Dean of the School of Medicine. He would be taking up responsibility as the Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Cape Town. He is a nationally and internationally recognised leader in Health Sciences Education. He would surely be missed. I wish to take this opportunity to thank him for his contributions to the School and to the University at large.
He would continue to lead the school until his final departure on the 15th March 2020. We would begin the search for a new Dean for the School in earnest. We would also in the near future be announcing interim arrangements for the leadership of the school.
Join me in thanking Prof Lionel Green-Thompson for his contributions and in wishing him well in his future endeavours.
