The Buzz - March 2014

What’s on my mind this month is the changing academic medical and biomedical research workforce, and how the School of Medicine can position itself to be the institution of choice and an institution of change.

Over the last few months, and in my 2013 State of the School address, I discussed the challenges we are facing in academic medicine: the budget cuts to the NIH, the cuts to Medicare, and the slow economic recovery across the country. I also outlined how the School of Medicine plans to surmount the roadblocks in our path, as well as the launch of our Shared Vision 2020 initiative.
