Everything That Counts

As an academic community of health professionals and researchers, we like to count and measure things. We test, we probe, we evaluate, and then we do it all over again. So, as we work to implement Temerty Medicine’s Academic Strategic Plan, it’s both natural and appropriate that we measure our performance. There are some standard metrics that have been used to evaluate our impact. For example, international rankings display our standing in the world in relation to peer institutions. But what constitutes a peer institution, what are the criteria used, and how do those criteria align with our values? As Einstein suggests in the quote above, what we can count and what we value aren't always aligned.  

Giving Back

The impact of donor support begins by enhancing the work of our clinicians, researchers and trainees but then resonates throughout the health-care system and ultimately serves to improve human health.
