I am pleased to share the strategic framework for the Queen’s Faculty of Health Sciences for 2017-21 with you. Five years ago, we developed a strategic framework that would unite the three schools in the Faculty of Health Sciences under one vision: to ask questions, seek answers, advance care and inspire change. You’ll see that in that time, we have been successful in achieving that vision in many ways, in that our staff, faculty members and students are inspiring change in research, education and in the delivery of clinical care.

As you read through the strategic framework and strategic plan, you’ll see that both the Faculty and School of Medicine have committed to four unifying strategic directions:

    • Conducting targeted and collaborative research
    • Developing, leading and implementing new models of education and training
    • Building strong and collaborative partnerships
    • Keeping patients and populations at the centre of our academic mission

At Queen’s, we aren’t satisfied to rest on our achievements. While we celebrate the successes of our past and present, we recognize that it is necessary to envision and prepare for the future – these two plans will guide us in doing just that.
