Strategic Initiatives at MSM

The Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) community has developed a shared vision and a way forward that leverages the strengths of our past and present yet spells out an extraordinary future toward the creation of health equity and lasting relevancy.

Throughout the development of the MSM strategic plan, we asked all the members of our MSM community to imagine what’s possible. As a result, we’re poised to meet the challenge of our new shared vision: Leading the creation and advancement of health equity.

To actualize our vision, we engage in strategic initiatives across each our vision imperatives:

  • Vision Imperative 1: Translating Discovery Into Health Equity
  • Vision Imperative 2: Building Bridges Between Healthcare and Health
  • Vision Imperative 3: Preparing Future Health Learners and Leaders
