Strategic Priorities

"UTMB's eight strategic pillars—people, quality, education, research, health system, strategic management & growth, financial success, and community—serve as the long-term conceptual framework for setting annual goals. These priorities are a constant, even though emphasis may vary from year to year. People or finance may take precedence one year, quality and service may be the focus the next. But each priority is important and, collectively, ensure that leadership never loses sight of the factors UTMB considers essential to success."
