Morehouse School of Medicine Strategic Plan
We as a MSM community have developed a shared vision and a way forward that leverages the strengths of our past and present yet spells out an extraordinary future toward the creation of health equity and lasting relevancy. Our strategic plan relied on the input of every member of our MSM family to define this strategic journey.
Throughout the development of the strategic plan, we asked all the members of our MSM community to imagine what’s possible. As a result, we’re now poised to meet the challenge of our new shared vision: Leading the creation and advancement of health equity.
