Warwick Medical School is pleased to announce that Professor Lesley Roberts will be joining as Pro-Dean for Education in July 2014.
Professor Roberts joins Warwick from the College of Medical and Dental Sciences at the University of Birmingham, where she first took up post in November 1996.
Peter Winstanley, Dean of Warwick Medical School, said “I’m delighted that Lesley will be joining us, bringing a wealth of experience that will help us build upon the foundations that we’ve established over the past fifteen years.”
Professor Roberts said, “I am thrilled to have been offered this opportunity to join such a progressive educational establishment and really look forward to the challenges this will bring. Warwick Medical School has a strong sense of identity and offers a unique student experience.
“I aim to further enhance the delivery of our programmes, the student experience and the breadth of our focus. I remember very well being a nervous new lecturer and how important the excellent mentorship I received was in developing my love for teaching. It’s my hope to act as a strong role model and mentor to ensure all teaching staff excel and obtain the sense of satisfaction I have achieved from my own teaching.”
