EVMS Strategic Plan 2015-2018

In early 2014, EVMS embarked on a dynamic strategic-planning process that culminated in September. Through this innovative and proactive process, EVMS faculty members, residents, students and staff enabled our academic medical center to leverage its resources strategically for the years 2015 through 2018.

Collectively and methodically, we identified our strengths, considered our weaknesses from an internal and external perspective, and determined where change is necessary and possible. With an eye toward the horizontal integration of each strategy and tactic, our planning principles included:

  • Improve quality
  • Identify/define deliverables
  • Provide a financial/academic return on investment
  • Project/advance the national reputation of EVMS
  • Define accountability
  • Align with EVMS Mission, Vision and Diversity statements
  • Demonstrate synergistic value across multiple mission areas

The plan addresses four core areas through subcommittees assigned to each:

  • Education
  • Research
  • Clinical
  • Partnerships

Each subcommittee included representation from a broad range of campus departments — including business management, finance, development, marketing and information technology — to ensure institutional resources and needs were thoroughly considered as proposals were developed and submitted to the Strategic Plan Steering Committee.
