For nearly a decade, the University of Rochester Medical Center has been guided by an evolving, five-goal strategic plan that leverages its teaching, research, and patient care missions and its history of excellence in basic, applied, and translational biomedical research and practice to build the national reputation of the University of Rochester. The plan acknowledged tectonic shifts in the health care and research landscape and built pathways to growth and stability.
Those pathways now provide an advantage for meeting the daunting challenges sparked by the pandemic and the social justice movement. In fact, the plan’s original themes are as relevant as ever: expand and transform our health care delivery system; create an inclusive culture; build programs of excellence that span research, education, and clinical care; and accomplish all of this while maintaining fiscal discipline. The following is a synopsis of the interconnected goals of the URMC Strategic Plan.
