Welcome from the Head of Department
Congratulations and welcome to your new role within the Radcliffe Department of Medicine. We are the one of the largest departments within the Medical Sciences Division, with over 650 staff members, around 130 graduate students, and an annual turnover of over £50 million, of which 65% is external research.
It is thanks to the hard work of all our staff and students that we are able to achieve our aims of excellence in research and teaching.
I wish you a happy and successful career in the Radcliffe Department of Medicine and I look forward to meeting many of you during your time with us
- Professor Keith Channon
We are passionate about supporting the careers of our staff and students, to drive innovation and boost research capacity. We are committed to fostering a positive culture that is inclusive and supportive of all staff and students, enabling them to reach their full potential. The wide scope of RDM’s research provides many opportunities for cross-disciplinary learning and collaboration.
We currently hold a Silver Athena Swan award in recognition of our efforts to introduce organisational and cultural practices that promote gender equality and create a better working environment for all. This is also embedded within our Respectful Behaviours Framework. We want to encourage, support and highlight good behaviour, such that being a member of RDM is a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
RDM has a devolved departmental structure (you will learn more about it on the next page): I encourage you to get to know your local administrative and academic teams, who will be your first points of contact for most queries.
For department-wide communications, we email round a Weekly Bulletin (see the quick links for the latest bulletin), full of important information, career development and training opportunities, funding announcements, events and more. This is the main way the department will communicate with you, so please do read it carefully.
You will hear from me again in regular Newsletters, via updates in the Weekly Bulletin and at departmental events such as our annual symposium.
With best wishes,
