New SFU Medical School moving forward

Posted in: ,

A new medical school on the Simon Fraser University (SFU) Surrey campus is taking a significant step forward with the hiring of an interim dean and provincial funding to support its development.

A key action in the recently released health human resources strategy is to open a new medical school at SFU. As part of this plan, the Province is investing as much as $4.9 million in startup funding to support activities such as accreditation, curriculum planning, engagement, space planning and professional staff to support the SFU medical school project office.
