Over a decade ago, Robert Chrencik, MBA, CPA, President and CEO of UMMS, and I adopted the phrase The Power of Partnership to embody the close collaboration and unique alignment that the School of Medicine and Medical System share. Prior to that time, the School and hospitals worked almost independently, despite the fact that our faculty provided the care across the Medical System, causing a level of misalignment that resulted in depressed revenues and stymied successes. By establishing a strong partnership, spearheaded by the leaders of our two great institutions, the School of Medicine and Medical System began to see immediate and dramatic results. After full alignment, our individual organizations experienced an unprecedented level of growth, becoming the multi-billion-dollar enterprise we are today. More recently, we’ve taken this partnership one step further, creating the new University of Maryland Medicine brand to show our solidarity and steadfast commitment to being a joint, exceptional academic medicine enterprise. This month, Mr. Chrencik and I have been invited by the AAMC’s Council of Deans and Council of Teaching Hospital CEOs to showcase the rich partnership between our School and the Medical System.
Most importantly, the collaborative spirit between our School of Medicine and Medical System isn’t just one that exists only at the level of the leadership. Indeed, The Power of Partnership is a concept that carries through all parts of our organizations, whether it be the partnership between our patients and our care teams, or the partnership between our basic and clinical research scientists.
The partnership between a patient and the care team is vital, not just to ensuring that a procedure or examination goes smoothly, but also that the recovery period is expeditious and free of complications. When a patient enters our doors, we forge an unwritten contract that we will provide sensitive, comprehensive care, utilizing the best science known today. For their part, our patients agree to be active participants in their care. For this reason, we’ve highlighted the high level of satisfaction our patients have reported regarding their care in this month’s newsletter.
Multi-disciplinary partnerships are vital to the success of our research enterprise. Since the launch of Vision 2020 in June of 2013, we have made a concerted effort to promote a culture of collaboration that transcends research fields and departments, bringing our best investigators together. We have devoted significant resources to foster these partnerships, and established a number of opportunities to increase team science across the School. One of these key initiatives is the new Institute for Clinical and Translational Research. Led by Stephen Davis, MBBS, this new institute draws upon the incredible intellectual capital we have among our faculty investigators from diverse research backgrounds. Collectively, they will work to rapidly bring discoveries made in basic science laboratories into therapeutics that will dramatically impact patient care.
A major component to our successful partnerships is our passion for what we do each day, from teaching our classes, to mentoring students and trainees, to the care we provide in our practices, to the research we conduct in our basic, translational, and clinical laboratories. Our common passion to help, to heal, and to strive for better brings us together. No one here works in a silo. We are all part of the same team, working to answer the Big Science questions facing biomedicine today. The celebration of our communal passion, and the incredible results this has achieved, is the theme of this year’s School of Medicine Gala, which will be held on May 5, 2018.
The strength of our enterprise comes from the partnerships we have formed with our colleagues. These partnerships are successful because of the passion behind the work. Just as University of Maryland Medicine is stronger for the collaboration between the School of Medicine and Medical System, so, too, is our research portfolio and clinical practices
buoyed by the deep commitment of our faculty community. I commend those who have already embodied The Power of Partnership in how they approach their work each day. Only by working cooperatively, collaboratively, and passionately can we hope to achieve our ultimate goal of improving the health of all humankind.
In the relentless pursuit of excellence, I am Sincerely yours,
E. Albert Reece, MD, PhD, MBA Vice President for Medical Affairs, University of Maryland John Z. and Akiko K. Bowers Distinguished Professor and Dean, University of Maryland School of Medicine
Kudos to our colleagues who are experts in their fields and give their all to represent the School of Medicine!
