Five schools at the University of Manitoba under single direction

WINNIPEG - Students in the schools of medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy and rehabilitation sciences at the University of Manitoba are now under the direction of one faculty.

All five departments have been rolled into the new Faculty of Health Sciences, which will have about 900 members with most coming from medicine.

Dr. Brian Postl (as in postal), dean of the new faculty, says the merger will result in a team-based approach to training, which will improve patient care.

Postl says the move will help save money and eventually lead to a new nurse training facility at the downtown Health Sciences Centre.

He says students entering the faculty this fall won't see any immediate changes, but eventually there will be common classes for some courses, such as anatomy. (CJOB)
