What's the Buzz - August 2013

What’s on my mind this month is the new Shared Vision 2020 plan for University of Maryland Medicine, which is aimed to accelerate the pace of discovery, collaboration, innovation and quality of patient-centered care across the Medical School and Medical System. Our new vision is meant to position us for maximum and extraordinary success in the face of the challenging times upon us. Together with our UMMS partners, we have decided to apply strategic, bold and different approaches to all our key mission areas—education, clinical care, finance and philanthropy, and research.
