January 29, 2018

“We will share and develop big, bold ideas that will inspire and challenge all members of the School of Medicine over the next five years,” declared Dean Talmadge E. King, Jr., MD, in his welcome address at the 2018 School of Medicine Leadership Retreat. With this year's theme being the evolving strategic plan for the school, he stressed the goal of developing “a shared understanding of what the school as a whole needs to accomplish, both to ensure that it continues to thrive and to provide solutions to some of the most challenging problems in medicine and science.”

Held January 11 and 12 in the Presidio, the event gathered around 150 top leaders from the school and across UCSF to weigh in on a series of proposed priorities and contribute ideas and viewpoints, from ethical ideals to practical challenges, to set a course for the future.
