School of Health Sciences staff at the open

School of Health Sciences academic and professional services staff enjoyed yet another opportunity to engage in an open discussion with their Dean and Head of School, Professor Mahmoud Soliman.

The Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences continues to make great strides towards positioning the School as a leader in health sciences education and improving communication within the School. He held an open forum with all staff in the School shortly after his new appointment to the deanship in January.

Soliman has kicked off the second semester with an open discussion inviting all staff to share thoughts and vision on the critical topic: “Staff accountability and professionalism and creating a healthy and positive working environment: challenges and solutions”.

Soliman said: ‘The main objective of the open discussion is to emphasize the importance of creating a transparent and efficient communication framework among staff members in the School and how this significantly impacts on progression in achieving the School’s goals, vision and mission.’

‘There is no shade of doubt that the work environment must be based on the values of mutual-respect, mutual-understanding, trust, accountability and responsibility,’ said Soliman. ‘Good communication is the key to the success for any institution. This is the essence of REACH values (Respect, Excellence, Accountability, Client-orientation and Honesty) and the transformation strategy in the university.’
