The year-long process of developing this 2015-2020 Joint Strategic Plan for UMass Medical School and UMass Memorial Medical Center revealed deep connections shared by faculty, staff, students and community members, along with a deep commitment to the future success of our institutions, especially as we face dramatic upheavals in health care financing and delivery; medical and health sciences education; and research funding and the translation of research into practice.
We have, together, coalesced around four strategic goals and four supporting goals to shape our growth and guide our evolution in the coming years. These strategic goals are:
We can only reach these ambitious milestones by establishing an information technology environment that enables the best care and patient experience, educates the finest caregivers and scientists and accelerates future therapies; by attracting, inspiring, cultivating and retaining outstanding talent; by providing a high-value ecosystem that maximizes opportunities and optimizes outcomes for our patients who seek prevention, treatments and cures for cancer; for our trainees who seek to become experts in all aspects of cancer; and for our researchers who seek new knowledge for the prevention, treatment and cure of cancer; and, finally, by transforming shared service operations to better serve and support our missions.
