It was a celebration for staff, students, alumni and partners at the University of Hull and Hull York Medical School earlier this month, as we welcomed Her Majesty The Queen for the opening of the Allam Medical Building, the heart of the University’s £28-million health campus.
We are extremely proud of the vital contribution that our students, graduates and staff make to the health of the region and this investment enables us to extend our impact through the delivery of pioneering teaching and research to provide the highest standard of healthcare for patients.
The development was supported by a £7-million donation from alumnus and East Yorkshire businessman Dr Assem Allam, alongside other key donors.
Our annual alumni telephone fundraising campaign, Foundation Thirty Nine, also raised almost £100,000 for student support at the new health campus. As well as continuing to provide general funds for scholarship and hardship support, your donations funded the purchase of equipment used in real clinical settings, and will help us train doctors, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals who are so desperately needed in the region and beyond.
Thank you for your continued support.
We are extremely proud of the vital contribution that our students, graduates and colleagues make in the healthcare field, in the region and beyond. We work in close collaboration with the NHS and other partners, to continue to evolve our curriculum and ultimately develop a resilient and adaptable workforce that will provide the highest standard of healthcare for patients.
Research carried out here in Hull is directly addressing critical health issues in the local region, which go on to have national and international impact.
