JABSOM actively engages in strategic planning processes that guide global and mission specific growth and development of the School. This strategic planning effort has incorporated strategic initiatives at the University of Hawaiʻi System, Mānoa Campus
, school-wide, departmental, and program levels, and is informed by the strategic priorities of our major health system and State Department of Health partners. The planning effort in broad strokes, focusing on larger JABSOM School-wide initiatives is presented on this webpage.
JABSOM’s strategic plan is a “living document” that is applied at both the level of the school and at the level of individual departments, centers, and offices; tactics are continually refined to advance the overall mission of the school. A key benefit of this process is the flexibility it affords the school in adapting to the rapidly changing healthcare environment, as it maintains attentiveness to opportunities and challenges in the implementation of the strategic plan.
