The senior academic administrators of the Faculty of Health Sciences now have new titles.

The change is in response to a review which found the titles of individuals responsible for education and research of the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University did not align with those of their counterparts at the other 16 Faculties and medical schools across the country. 

The new titles have been approved by the University's Senate and Board of Governors to begin July 1. The changes impact the former associate deans of the Faculty, as well as the former assistant deans of undergraduate and postgraduate medicine.

"These new titles recognize the levels of responsibility of our senior academic administrators, and put them on par with their counterparts across Canada," said Paul O'Byrne, dean and vice-president of the Faculty of Health Sciences.

The current incumbents and their new titles are:

  • Susan Denburg, executive vice-dean and associate vice-president, academic, Faculty of Health Sciences. Her title had been associate vice-president, academic, Faculty of Health Sciences.
  • Jonathan Bramson, vice-dean, research, Faculty of Health Sciences. Previously, his title was associate dean, research, Faculty of Health Sciences.
  • William Orovan, vice-dean, clinical services and commercial enterprises, Faculty of Health Sciences. He was associate dean, clinical services and commercial enterprises.
  • The new head of the School of Rehabilitation Sciences will be vice-dean, Faculty of Health Sciences and executive director, School of Rehabilitation Science. Patty Solomon, who retired from the role on June 30, had the title of associate dean, health sciences and director, School of Rehabilitation Science.
