Our ambition: To be a leading college of medicine that transforms the health of our communities through inclusive and innovative education, discovery and care.
The Ohio State University College of Medicine is a leader in innovative programs, initiatives and curriculum because of our collaborative spirit, our clear vision and our strong ability to continually evolve to meet ever-changing demands in medicine. Careful strategic planning is key to our success.
“Not only does our strategic plan create a strong, distinctive college identity, it sets priorities and facilitates ownership so our teams can embrace a commitment to shared success,” says Dean Carol R. Bradford, MD, MS, FACS.
Our faculty, staff and learners all played a vital role in the development of our new strategic plan. The plan provides foresight into our collective future and affords countless opportunities to imagine and realize amazing new ways to deliver health care and health care education.
With this plan, our ambition is to be a college of medicine that transforms the health of our communities through inclusive and innovative education, discovery and care. The Ohio State University College of Medicine will deliver on this ambition by manifesting a culture where people feel valued, have the opportunity to thrive and excel, care for themselves and each other, and celebrate all forms of diversity.
The dynamic discovery, innovative clinical care and top-notch learning activities taking place across our academic medical center all ladder up to our ambition. By creating a culture of excellence and diversity, and by providing unmatched facilities and support, our future discoveries will translate into transformational treatments and improved wellness for the communities we serve.
Seven strategic pillars, each with unique goals and strategies, power our strategic plan and propel us to be a pioneering College of Medicine.
