Council of the University

Changes in Regulations

Council has made the following changes to regulations, to come into effect on 22 December.

Renaming of the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Explanatory Note

The following changes, made on the recommendation of the Medical Sciences Board, reflect the renaming of the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology as the Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health. The use of this more modern title better reflects the breadth of the department's activities. The opportunity is also taken to ensure that the gender-neutral term 'chair', rather than 'chairman' is used throughout.
