On November 30, 2015, the Faculty of M+BS held its annual Excellence Awards ceremony where we recognised the efforts of those within our faculty and those working with our faculty.

Staff from across our schools and institutes were recognised for their contribution to the faculty’s vision of being among the best faculties of medicine and biomedical sciences worldwide.

In addition to the Excellence Awards, those staff members who received promotions in 2015 were also recognised.
