Just as your institution has its own unique identity, it should ideally also have a strategic approach to planning that cohesively defines the benchmarks of success for your missions and initiatives. To accomplish this, and to attract the most qualified leaders to champion these efforts, you might consider a consulting partner that can help assess, distill, synthesize and analyze data and information from both internal documents and publicly available records. Invaluable Insights, Detailed Reporting The Academic Advisory Council-MH strategic planning service provides invaluable insights by listening to the opinions and perspectives of a diverse array of institutional leaders, constituencies and stakeholders, in tandem with a review of public and shared background materials. This enables the AAC-MH to produce a detailed report that is tailored to your institution and that addresses key questions of importance to the institution, offering comments and recommendations for consideration. The AAC-MH, which consists of three thought leaders in academic medicine, is available by phone consultation or onsite visits to address key strategic initiatives and questions you may have regarding the recruitment or planning process. Following our consult, we generate a detailed written report, typically in 4 weeks, that addresses your most critical needs, also making our thought leaders available for additional questions and planning sessions. The Academic Advisory Council has had the privilege to work with some of the most prestigious organizations. Examples of some of our recent Academic Advisory Council engagements include:

  • University of Texas Dell Medical School in Austin
  • University of Florida
  • Rosalind Franklin University
  • University of Chicago
  • University of Cincinnati
  • University of Kentucky
  • SUNY-Upstate
