Transformative Excellence in Academic Medicine

Launched in April 2017, Transformative Excellence in Academic Medicine (TEAM) is a visionary initiative that will position our integrated academic medical system for growth in the complicated and changing world of health care.

Saint Louis University's School of Medicine.

TEAM will chart a course to take full advantage of SLUCare's excellence in academic medicine, which sets us apart from most other medical groups. Through TEAM, we will more fully align our missions of education, patient care and research.

We will embark on ambitious measures focused on quality improvement and growth. We will expand patient access so more St. Louisans can be treated by the top clinicians and researchers in their fields. We will create a structure for our organization that will be nimble, patient-focused and a magnet for excellence.

As we move forward with this new initiative and other improvement efforts for our School of Medicine and SLUCare, our focus remains on enhancing the patient experience, advancing medical research and strengthening the education of future medical and health care professionals. We are committed to using data-driven approaches and being guided by our mission.
