TEAM Update: 11 Institutes Identified

I have just met with department chairs and want you to have the information I shared with them about our plan to transition to an institute model. Here is a link to a brief video and slides that outline our plan.

We are continuing to work on details and will hold a town hall at 7 a.m. and noon on Wednesday, Nov. 15 to provide additional updates. Because we want to hear from you, an open comment period will follow. We anticipate decisions on the institute-department matrix model will be finalized by mid-December.

Health care is changing, and we must innovate so our organization is poised to deliver quality and growth in all we do. I’m confident this change will position Saint Louis University School of Medicine as a leader in health care, joining prestigious medical centers such as Cleveland Clinic and Stanford Medical as early adopters of this organizational design.
