2.) Delineate the role of clinical science in the strategic repositioning of the University and the Academic Health Center.
3.) Inventory and assess the current status of clinical science in the Academic Health Center, including the presence of clinical scholars, mentoring and development programs, recognition and reward systems for clinical scholars, and infrastructure platforms that support clinical science.
4.) Propose goals for the development of the clinical sciences, including principles of investment, areas for investment, linkages with basic and translational research, linkages with clinical service lines, volume and kinds of clinical research, effective mentorship of clinical scholars, and models of care delivery and new therapeutics.
5.) Develop a plan for achieving the goals for the development of the clinical sciences, including faculty needs, education and training needs, staff needs and facility needs.
