A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR:
Throughout the UCLA Department of Medicine, you will find LEADERS - leaders who are at the forefront of innovation, transforming care, and advancing health for all. Our collective leadership is building the foundation that distinguishes us as a premiere academic department of medicine committed to continuous growth that impacts the lives of people around the world. I am pleased to introduce to you the department’s strategic plan, the product of thoughtful engagement based on valuable input by a wide cross section of our community, including department faculty, staff, trainees, community partners, health system and campus leadership. In this strategic plan summary, we present the vision, goals, and strategies that will guide our objectives across four missions: research, education, patient care, and community engagement and investment. As we move forward, we will be guided by our core values which recognize that the heart of our department’s success is the well-being and success of the people who make up the Department of Medicine at UCLA.
I invite you to explore the UCLA Department of Medicine’s strategic plan and get involved as we work together to lead in innovation, transform care, and advance health for all.
