Office of Marketing and Communications

The Office of Marketing and Communications (MarCom) manages strategic communications to promote the Faculty’s brand and reputation of excellence in research and education. 

Attracting the finest students, teachers and researchers involves showcasing our unique educational environment, our innovative science and research facilities, and opportunities to learn from world-renowned teachers and excel in one’s field.

We work closely with the FoM’s Executive Leadership Team (ELT), Research Office and other staff, our University colleagues, and our partner hospitals and research institutes to showcase our most noteworthy stories to the public, demonstrating how our achievements improve societal outcomes. Our reputation depends on us sharing our achievements.
