Last year was a time of building for the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Chancellor Peter Buckley, MD, told the university’s Advisory Board during its winter meeting Friday. New leaders were recruited, a state-of-the-art-dental building opened, and a five-year strategic plan was adopted.
This year, he said, UT Health Science Center will continue building on its stellar legacy, guided by the new 2023-2028 Strategic Plan and its vision: Healthy Tennesseans. Thriving Communities.
A major focus will be on amplifying both UT Health Science Center’s reach and presence as Tennessee’s only statewide academic health science institution, as well as the strong partnerships with major hospitals across the state that are central to training the state’s health care workforce and caring for the people of Tennessee.
“What we do matters,” the chancellor said. “Our vision is meaningful, not just for us, but for everyone in Tennessee.”
