School of Medicine Community Feedback

On August 16, representative stakeholders met virtually to review research-related goals and strategies and to suggest tactics and metrics that should be incorporated into the plan. The Dean’s Senior Leadership Team worked with this input to further refine the goals, and an updated draft plan has been circulated throughout the School of Medicine community for review and comment by December 6. The Dean’s Senior Leadership Team will review and assess this feedback for incorporation into the final document, which will launch with the new year.
