MUSC Strategic Plan 2010-2015


MUSC will be a leader in interprofessional/ interdisciplinary practices by building on existing activities and fostering an environment that rewards innovative and integrated education, research, and
patient care.

   “MUSC has a strong and  consistent commitment to interprofessional and interdisciplinary activities. As a nationally recognized leader in interprofessional activities for education, the strategic plan focuses on our best practices in this area,  while further expanding activities to include patient care and research.”

 - Judy Dubno, PhD and Philip Hall, PharmD, Co-Chairs


We care for health more effectively together than alone. This principle is supported by evidence gathered and disseminated by the World Health Organization and the Institute of Medicine (IOM). The impetus for emphasizing Interprofessional and Interdisciplinary (IP/ID) Collaboration in MUSC’s Strategic Plan has a long history within our institution. In 1990, our University Education Committee called on us to break down college barriers that tended to silo each professional education program. By 1997, our strategic plan included IP/ID work as one of five areas of emphasis, five years before the IOM advocated this emphasis across our industry in order to improve the quality and safety of health care. Our leadership in this area continued in 2008 with our 10-year educational Quality Enhancement Plan called Creating Collaborative Care (C3). The 2010-2015 Strategic Plan supports this most recent effort while extending its reach to the clinical and research arenas.
