Facultas nostra 2022, February
During the ceremonial meeting of the academic community on 25 January 2022 prof. Fínek was inaugurated for the second time as the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen by Rector of CU prof. Tomáš Zima. Prof. Fínek was re-elected by the Academic Senate of the Faculty in October 2021. The Vice-Rector for Education and the future Rector of CU prof. Milena Králíčková, the Rector of the University of West Bohemia doc. Miroslav Holeček, the President of the Pilsen Region Ilona Mauritzová and the Mayor of the City of Pilsen Pavel Šindelář attended the ceremony as guests.
Rector of CU Tomáš Zima thanked to the Dean Jindřich Fínek for successful management of the Faculty in the past four years and he wished him and his team further successful development of the Faculty. “I am glad that we have launched the second stage of the campus construction, that all goes well and I am looking forward to our meeting on the occasion of the opening of the new premises,” said Rector. In his speech, prof. Fínek also thanked Rector Zima for his support of the construction, which is crucial for the future of the Faculty.

The extraordinary meeting of the academic community of the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen was also an occasion for the special award of recently created Faculty silver memorial medals. The previous Faculty medals were made of bronze and designed by the sculptor and medalist Ladislav Fládr in the 1970’s. On the occasion of its 75th anniversary the Faculty innovated the medals and had them made of silver (we wrote about their creation in April 2021). Rector of CU prof. Tomáš Zima and the Vice-Rector and the future Rector of CU Milena Králíčková, whose professional journey has been closely connected to the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, became the first holders of the medals.
