Dec. 2, 2021 — As the UF College of Medicine paves the way forward with a new, comprehensive strategic plan, departments are forming watch events to view the upcoming live event.
Dean Colleen Koch, M.D., M.S., M.B.A., will unveil the details of the college’s 2021-2026 strategic plan at the livestreamed town hall on Dec. 10, from 7-8 a.m.
Medicine colleagues are preparing for the plan’s launch by forming watch events for the occasion — from neurology and orthopaedics to the Clinical and Translational Science Institute and UF Health Professional Park — the community is excited to hear the details of the plan created with input from everyone at the College of Medicine.
“Of the seven pillars of the UFCOM strategic plan, I’m most excited and engaged with the Diversity, Inclusion and Health Care Equity pillar,” said Jerell Blackburn, an administrative specialist in the office of student affairs. “True diversity requires not just the physical proximity of diverse people, but authentic relationships between those diverse individuals in every aspect of the organization, and I look forward to learning more about how this pillar will help dismantle systems of oppression within health care as I watch the town hall with my colleagues.”
The strategic plan, created through input from College of Medicine stakeholders, including faculty, learners, trainees, administration and advanced practice providers, aims to engage the community, inspire innovation in research and excel in learning discovery and healing.
In addition to in-depth videos introducing the plan’s seven pillars during the town hall, faculty involved in the plan’s innovative projects will be answering your questions live during the event. Visit the strategic plan page on the College of Medicine website to submit your questions in advance.
