    Administrative History

    Health Sciences Communications, a division of University Communications, was formed in 1989 when the UC San Diego School of Medicine Public Affairs Office and the Public Information Office of the UC San Diego Medical Center merged. The office of Health Sciences Communications is responsible for disseminating newsworthy information such as achievements, programs, and projects involving the School of Medicine and the Medical Center.
    The public relations offices promoting the School of Medicine and the Medical Center have experienced periodic reorganization. Prior to being united as Health Sciences Communications, the School of Medicine and the Medical Center were served by separate public relations offices. The Medical Center's public relations office, established in 1969, functioned independently of the Public Affairs Office on campus. In 1971, this office was designated as Public Information - University Hospital. In 1973, the public relations office for the School of Medicine separated from the Public Affairs Office on campus, forming a new office called the UCSD School of Medicine Public Affairs Office. These two offices merged in 1989 to become Health Sciences Communications, a division of University Communications.
