The Faculty Board

The field of medical science covers all academic activities pursued by KI and makes up the medical faculty. The KI management includes a Faculty Board with overall strategic responsibility for education, research, and outreach work at the faculty. Its main concerns are resource allocation, quality systems, recruitment, infrastructure and internationalisation.
