2023 - 2025 Strategic Priorities: For Review

These draft strategic priorities outline our vision for what we as a school will prioritize and achieve over the next three years. As members of the IU School of Medicine community, we are asking you to review our proposed priorities and outcomes and share your thoughts on what we are missing, what needs to be modified and what actions we will need to take to reach our goals. 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.

About the Feedback Process

In early 2022, Dean Jay Hess, the Executive Associate Deans and the Chief of Staff began work to update our strategic plan. It was decided to compile a 3-year plan (2023-2025) to align future strategic plans with IU Health’s next strategic planning cycle starting in 2025. The group brainstormed priorities, reviewed key metrics and discussed potential goals during weekly leadership team meetings.

In June 2022, three co-chairs were appointed to complete the steering committee: Dr. David Wallace, Chair of Ophthalmology; Michelle Artmeier, Vice Chair of Business Administration for the Department of Surgery; and Dr. Yar Luan (Samantha) Yeap, Associate Professor of Clinical Anesthesia and past president of the Faculty Steering Committee. The co-chairs will attend meetings of faculty (both clinical and research), residents, students (graduate, masters, medical students and other health professions students), alumni and staff to gather input on the drafted plan, which will ultimately influence the final document.

A series of town halls to discuss the plan will also be scheduled in the fall, and will be open to all in the School of Medicine community. Ultimately the feedback gathered in those meetings, and via the online feedback form, will help the steering committee finalize the 2023-2025 plan.
