Faculty of Health Sciences
The students and faculty in the Faculty of Health Sciences have benefited tremendously as a result of the unprecedented generosity of our Initiative Campaign donors. Through philanthropy, we have been able to fortify our teaching, build our research function and elevate the reputation of our Schools of Nursing, Rehabilitation Therapy and Medicine in extraordinary ways.
We have created a number of chairs, including the Sally Smith Chair in Nursing and the Britton A. Smith Chair in Surgery, which will fuel innovation in research and education. Patients in Kingston and beyond will benefit.
Our alumni have rallied to create unprecedented class gifts. The Class of Rehabilitation Therapy 1970 Bursary established the first endowed class fund in the School of Rehabilitation Therapy that provides financial assistance to students. The Class of Medicine 1974 raised the largest faculty class gift during the campaign, and many other classes pledged their support to assist students, fuel research and impact patient care.
Finally, through the Initiative Campaign we have been able to strengthen infrastructure to attract high calibre students to Queen’s. This is best exemplified in the construction of a state-of-the-art home for the School of Medicine. Located on the corner of Arch Street and Stuart Street, the new building has had a tremendous impact on the delivery of education, the student experience and indeed the Queen’s campus.
We are grateful for all of the support that has enabled the Faculty of Health Sciences to drive unparalleled healthcare education, innovation and research at Queen’s.
