UICOMP Strategic Planning Overview
The University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria embarks on a new Strategic Planning Process. This incrementally follows the Strategic Plan now underway for the University of Illinois College of Medicine which encompasses, the College as a whole and its three regional campuses – Chicago, Rockford and Peoria.
Here in Peoria, the UICOMP Strategic Plan follows the broad plan of UI COM with aligned priorities with UI COM. However, the UICOMP plan does encompass the unique vantage point, including both strengths, weaknesses and opportunities that are indeed unique to UICOMP, the Peoria healthcare landscape and the greater Peoria area as a whole.
The current draft of the Strategic Plan, available here for your review, is the result of much reflection, thought and discussion. Shaping the current draft of this plan is input from campus leadership, stakeholders at all levels of the organization through Town Hall and department-level meetings and small group presentations.
Interim Regional Dean Meenakshy Aiyer led sessions to stimulate strategic thinking and formulate suggestions, to develop all-inclusive feedback and formulate a strategic plan to guide UICOMP into the next decade. With this in mind, the Interim Regional Dean and executive leadership have taken a broad approach that includes strategic partners and collaborators to assist the College of Medicine in its expansion of medical education, research, care delivery, and public service in the Peoria communities and respective service areas.
