Indiana University School of Medicine exists to improve the health of people in Indiana and beyond. For well more than a century, we have delivered on that promise. Our faculty has cured a cancer, pioneered echocardiography, invented the electronic medical record and revolutionized the delivery of medical education through the use of regional campuses.
But for all of these, and many other, extraordinary accomplishments, there is much more work to be done. This strategic plan outlines our vision for what we as a school will prioritize and achieve over the next few years. It incorporates input from hundreds of members of the IU School of Medicine community and represents our commitment to the state of Indiana; our hospital and industry partners; granting agencies and donors; and—most importantly—to patients.
As you will read, our goals are ambitious. We are challenging ourselves to improve the health of Indiana citizens in specific ways, increase our research productivity, make clinical studies more accessible, and develop nationally recognized programs in medical education. We are also committing to find new ways to emphasize wellness and diversity across our nine campuses.
We now have an updated road map. It is up to all of us who are invested in IU School of Medicine to bring this plan to life. In doing so, we will ensure we are well positioned to continue fulfilling our mission to prepare exceptional healers and transform health.
