Developing a Strategic Plan

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

A steering committee of 27 of the school’s leaders, including faculty and students, was assembled to oversee the process.

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

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