The chairwoman of NHS Grampian’s board has taken up the position of visiting professor at Robert Gordon University (RGU).
Dr Lynda Lynch’s appointment aims to build on the relationship between the two bodies.
In her new role at RGU’s school of nursing and midwifery, Dr Lynch will advise students and academics and work on the postgraduate curriculum.
Dr Lynch said: “I am honoured to accept this appointment and to continue to build on the strong relationship NHS Grampian has with RGU.
“Robert Gordon University not only provides critical employees for the NHS through its training programmes, but also contributes significantly to developing our staff, and patient services, through research.”
Professor Ian Murray, RGU’s head of the school of nursing and midwifery, said her “wealth of experience and knowledge” will be invaluable to the university.
In the recent Guardian University Guide 2020, 100% of the university’s nursing alumni were found to be employed within six months of graduating.
