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.
