Vision 2020 Update: May 2014
Dear Colleagues, Supporters and Friends of Tulane
On May 14, the strategic goals for the Tulane University School of Medicine were presented at the Town Hall meting with faculty, staff, students, residents, fellows, alumni, and board members in attendance. The plan reflects the critical input and feedback from over 100 participants on Vision 2020 committees and nearly 1000 respondents from our stakeholder survey. It has been most gratifying to see the engagement of our Vision 2020 committee members and our many stakeholders in providing excellent recommendations and feedback over the last 6 months. As a result, we have renewed vision and mission statements and a solid roadmap to move us forward for distinction over the next 5 years.
Simply stated, the Tulane University School of Medicine seeks to discover, learn and heal. Our long-term vision is to be a distinctive, preeminent research-intensive medical school transforming health through discovery, lifelong learning, and patient-centered health care. Over the next 5 years, our school will target 5 strategic areas to distinguish the school regionally and nationally while continuing the excellent work already underway in research, education, and clinical care.
Strategic Goals: The 5 strategic goals build on our strengths and maximize our opportunities while minimizing our weaknesses and the academic environmental threats and reflect our tripartite mission. More details regarding some of the ways we will achieve these goals are posted on this website. We are committed to delivering on these goals but realize the importance of remaining flexible in how best to achieve the goals in a changing academic medical environment.
In order to strengthen our position and ensure success, we will address and improve several enterprise-wide activities.
Some of these efforts take only minimal resources, but require us to change how we work and what we focus on. Change is never easy but our adaptability will be key to our long term success. We will monitor our progress and modify our roadmap as needed to achieve the end goal - a distinctive Tulane School of Medicine. Our success will be reflected in a variety of ways including increases in grants awarded, scholarly products, SOM ranking, student and resident satisfaction, faculty and alumni engagement, patient satisfaction and volumes, and Improved quality metrics.
Thank you for your continued support of the Vision 2020 Strategic Planning Initiative for the School of Medicine.
