Strategic Planning

The strategic plan for the College of Medicine – Tucson is closely tied to the plans of the Arizona Health Sciences Center (AHSC), and to the "Never Settle" strategic academic and business plan of the University of Arizona.

AHSC Town Hall, September 5, 2014
Dr. Joe G.N. "Skip" Garcia, UA senior vice president for health sciences and interim dean of the College of Medicine – Tucson, discusses ongoing AHSC efforts, focusing specifically on major growth in research infrastructure, personnel and programs. He also talks about recent strategic hires, the establishment of new research centers and how AHSC plans to meet one- and five-year goals in addition to mandates set forth by the UA-wide Never Settle strategic academic and business plan.

AHSC Town Hall, December 17, 2013
Dr. Garcia outlines his plan to significantly advance AHSC through a major emphasis on expanding its biomedical research enterprise, as well as increasing its diversity and enhancing its partnerships and collaborations, among other efforts. The plan aims to create an academic health center that better serves the state of Arizona and its people—and, in so doing, emerge as one of the nation’s premier academic health centers.
