Developing a Strategic Plan

We partnered with AMC Strategies, a premier strategic planning firm for medical schools, to assist in developing a clinical care strategic plan.

A steering committee of 21 of the school’s leaders, faculty, health care and community partners, was assembled to oversee the process.

The steering committee outlined strategic direction for clinical care, related research and medical education issues to:    

  •     define an overall vision for the clinical care program
  •     identify measurable goals to support the vision
  •     outline specific strategies with recommended tactics that address each of the goals.
