Developing a Strategic Plan

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

A steering committee of 25 of the school’s leaders, including faculty and students, was assembled to oversee the process.

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

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