Strategic Plan 2019-2022

Letter from the Dean

Faculty, Staff and Students,

I am very pleased to share with you the 2019-2022 NEOMED College of Medicine Strategic Plan. I have been inspired by the commitment and thoughtfulness our faculty, staff , students and partners have demonstrated in establishing this plan. This collaborative effort has identified fundamental priorities for the next three years that will serve as the College’s foundation moving forward.

Our new mission and vision statements guided the strategic planning process while our LCME accreditation self-study process and findings guided the prioritization of our focus.

NEOMED College of Medicine, through education, research and public service, inspires medical students to become exemplary patient care centered physicians. We seek to improve the health and quality of life of the communities of Ohio and beyond, including those both diverse and underserved.

We aspire to be a national leader in community centered medicine, recognized for challenging and empowering its students and faculty to be leaders of transformational change by furthering the health of Ohio communities and addressing Ohio healthcare challenges.

By design, the strategic plan will be a dynamic framework to move the College into the future. The process has and will continue to engage and solicit honest input from our stakeholders including faculty and staff, clinical and university partners, alumni and students.

I have a deep devotion to NEOMED, where I was once a student, and I promise in my role as Dean to work tirelessly with faculty, staff, and students to transform and sustain our College of Medicine, now and for our future students. I want to build upon the legacy of the thousands of successful alumni who came before and who provide the highest quality care to their patients.

Thank you for joining me in supporting the College of Medicine. Our community is a very special one. Together, we will imagine the future of health care and seek innovative ways to meet our mission and vision.
