Chancellor Don Elliman offered an ambitious and compelling plan in his annual State of the Campus address last Tuesday. “We seek to be a medical destination of such breadth and quality,” he said, “that no one from the Rocky Mountain region should ever have to travel beyond this campus to receive the finest care in the world.” The clinical care here on the Anschutz Medical Campus strengthens and stems from our outstanding research and education programs. Each part reinforces the other. Don set several goals, including pushing higher in the NIH research funding ranks, diversifying our research portfolio, increasing efforts to provide mental and behavioral health care and investing in a service line that pushes the campus to the top rank in the country. Already, the pulmonary programs here, in conjunction with National Jewish Health, rank among the nation’s best, and Don said we should aim for that level of accomplishment in another service line. Here at the School of Medicine, our significant investments this year in the Transformational Research Projects give us a solid start. The plans Don outlined are certainly achievable goals and we look forward to working together on them. The full text of the chancellor’s State of the Campus address is posted
