  6. Publications are a Key Performance Metric • Quantity • Quality • First author/last author

  7. Space is a Key Performance Metric • Lab size • Lab location • Must pay for space

  8. Tenure is Key Goal for Faculty • Instructor • Assistant Professor • Associate Professor • Professor • Named Professor

  9. Tenure • Averages seven years to get • Guaranteed employment

  10. Scholarly Activity • Thinking big thoughts • Experimentation • NIH • Pay lines

  11. Scholarly Activity • Individual vs. team science • Lots of meetings • Knowledge is to be shared

  12. Success Creating New Knowledge • Technology transfer • Patents • Spinoff companies

  13. UMCCC: Biotechnology Development Spinoff Biotech Cos.

  14. Organization of Medical School vs. Hospital • Leadership – Dean vs. CEO • Financial – Grants/tuition vs. patient care revenue • Departments – Basic and Clinical vs. Clinical only • Stature – NIH funding vs. US NWR

  15. What is an IRB? • Institutional Review Board(s) • Protect the rights and safety of human subjects engaged in research • Multidisciplinary

  16. Administrative Integration at UM Health System • Security • Human Resources • Finance

  17. What is the FGP • Faculty Group Practice • Governing body for Medical School • Key stakeholder in hospital • Dominated by chairs and faculty

  18. What is an Intern vs. Resident? • Intern – completed 4 years of medical school • Resident – learning specialty training 2-5 years • Fellow – additional subspecialty training (ex. Oncology)

  19. Key Performance Metrics for Medical School • Acceptance rate of applicants • GPA of students • Matching rate of graduates • Evaluation of faculty

  20. UMCCC Vision Statement We will be a nationally recognized leader and innovator in: • Paradigm-shifting research and novel therapeutics that diagnose and treat cancer • The provision of high quality, multidisciplinary cancer care • The training of tomorrow’s cancer care providers and researchers “We will define the next generation of cancer care”

  24. SWOT Analysis - Strengths Research • Eight of 10 UM graduate schools are among the top 10 schools nationwide - LSA - Engineering - Social Work - Pharmacy - Public Health - Nursing - Information - Dentistry

  25. SWOT Analysis - Strengths Research • Stem cells • Genetics • Molecular diagnostics • Imaging • Molecular targeted therapies • Radiation biology • Population sciences • Health services research

  26. SWOT Analysis - Strengths • Rapidly growing Phase I program • Faculty leadership in national organizations - ASCO - ASH - ASTRO - AACR - NCI-Board of Scientific Advisors

  27. SWOT Analysis - Weaknesses • Research • Open position for Associate Director of Clinical Research • Clinical trials enrollment is lower than desired (13% of new patients) – target is 15% • Inadequate portfolio of highly visible clinical trials

  28. SWOT Analysis - Opportunities • UMCCC faculty strengths in Personalized Oncology • Biotech start-up potential • New drug development • New multi-investigator grants • Novel multidisciplinary lifelong survivorship model • Potential to partner with Dr. Trent, Van Andel Institute and TGEN

  29. SWOT Analysis - Threats • Research • Flat NIH budgets after stimulus expires • Small national pool for recruitment • Increasing clinical demands on faculty effort may inhibit research
