As our 2015-2020 strategic plan draws to a close, it is time to create a new plan; one that will guide us through 2025. With a steering committee of more than 20 individuals who represent various interests across the School, and the guidance of a team from Corpus Sanchez International, we will once again set our sights high and create a renewed set of goals.
This strategic planning process will involve re-evaluating the School’s mission to ensure that our areas of focus remain relevant. We will seek input from our students, residents, staff, faculty members and our partners both here in the North and across the province. And we will look at the current research and health-care landscapes to understand the opportunities and threats that lay before us. With this information comes the most important part: finding the balance between creativity and risk by setting bold deliverables that will drive us into the future.
As we embark on a strategic planning process to inform our priorities for the next five years, we want to hear from you. Help NOSM build on its strengths, address challenges in sustainability, and support its continued journey of Innovative education and research for a healthier North.
