During my recent State of the School address, I reviewed the progress and success that our school has experienced over the last five years. That advancement included a sharp increase of more than $100M in National Institutes of Health (NIH) research funding as well as other research funding, the expansion of educational programming, and growth in clinical care numbers.
Last month we discussed all the progress and success the School of Medicine has experienced over the past five years, and I remain deeply proud of all of you for your efforts in helping us reach so many significant goals. But the question now is how do we frame the next five years to produce even more accomplishments and growth?
