The Road Ahead 2017 COVER
UTMB’s institutional vision, The Road Ahead, has been updated for 2017–2019.

It outlines four essential strategic priorities—People, Value, Strategic Management and Growth, and Resources—which are the foundation for the institution’s strategic vision and all our efforts to improve lives in an evolving health care landscape.

This year, we are focusing our strategic priorities toward becoming a Top 20 health care provider among academic medical centers, through the Best Care initiative. Achieving this goal will help ensure the long-term health of our mission.

The Road Ahead is the result of ongoing and long-term planning by executive leadership, with key input from the UTMB community. It illustrates how every member of the university community—in classrooms, laboratories, hospitals, clinics and support areas throughout Texas—is vital to our mission of improving health in Texas and around the world.
