Better by change: How UMMS has navigated turbulent times (Dec. 8)

December 7, 2015  //  FOUND IN: Announcements,

Change is inevitable. How organizations adapt to change determines whether they fail, survive or thrive.

The University of Michigan Medical School has exceled during times of change, thanks to the hard work of its faculty, staff and students. Their perseverance and commitment to a strong set of core values (collaboration, innovation and investment, among them) has allowed Michigan to remain an elite institution.

On Dec. 8, Dean James O. Woolliscroft, M.D., will examine the U-M’s decade of change and celebrate the people that have helped us navigate it during his final presentation on the state of the Medical School, “Better by Change, Not by Chance,” at 5 p.m. in the D. Dan and Betty Kahn Auditorium of the A. Alfred Taubman Biomedical Science Research Building.

Following the presentation, Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs Marschall S. Runge, M.D., Ph.D., will make closing remarks. A reception will follow at 6 p.m. in the Gilbert S. Omenn Atrium.
