UEB priorities for FMDH in 2020-21

  1. Embed the faculty priorities, ensuring collaboration across departments and divisions and breaking down silo working
  2. Ensure the action plan for REF2021 is enacted with plans to reduce 2* outputs and produce a framework and environment that ensures a pipeline of high quality outputs and impact case studies for REF2028;
  3. Develop a Faculty Research Strategy and deliver on plans to align academic appointments to Faculty research priorities and Flagship Institutes with a view to increasing Faculty research income and improving teaching;
  4. Enhance grant capture in the Faculty, specifically in Oncology and through the utilisation of the Sheffield PET-MRI facility;
  5. Develop a Faculty workload allocation model in context of the institutional reflection on workload;
  6. Enact the PGR strategy to increase the number of students through use of externally funded studentships, renew doctoral training programmes and strategically use match funding for studentships in a way which aligns to research priorities;
  7. Develop a plan to review and develop the PGT portfolio, which includes working with other faculties on areas of mutual interest and implementing an action plan to improve retention of intercalating students
  8. Continue to embed the Programme Level Approach (PLA) across the Faculty, sharing best practice and using this as a catalyst for improvements across learning and teaching;
  9. Use the Academic Career Pathway (ACP) and SRDS to ensure staff understand and perform in line with expectations for their areas of work;
  10. Continue to embed the Health Sciences School into business as usual, review the programme offer and propose new apprenticeship programmes where appropriate.
