AAMC releases 2013 Missions Management Tool for UNC School of Medicine

Did you know that 95.6% of medical students are satisfied with their training at UNC? Or that UNC is in the 90th percentile, among peer medical schools, for graduating students who practice medicine in underserved communities? You can see the data for yourself, and much more, in the 2013 AAMC Missions Management Tool (MMT). The MMT is intended to provide the leadership of each medical school with data relative to its mission and goals. This information is now online for everyone in the School of Medicine community to view.


From the report:

 

All U.S. medical schools share the missions of teaching, biomedical research, and the provision of health care. However, the emphasis that any individual medical school places on these missions and its unique goals varies among medical schools. This variability is driven by many factors, including a medical school’s charter, its history, its character as a public or privately supported institution, as well as expectations of the state, the faculty, and the local community.

The Missions Management Tool (MMT) is intended to provide the leadership of each medical school with data relative to its mission and goals. The MMT reflects the many varied missions and goals of the medical schools. The AAMC has not created a composite index from the measures in this report because it is our intention to depict the individual outcomes achieved by each medical school. The AAMC rejects the notion of a single ultimate composite index to assess medical schools.

The MMT includes data on forty-five measures in six domains. The mission domains selected are:

1. Graduate a Workforce that Will Address the Priority Health Needs of the Nation
2. Prepare a Diverse Physician Workforce
3. Foster the Advancement of Medical Discovery
4. Provide High Quality Medical Education as Judged by Your Recent Graduates
5. Prepare Physicians to Fulfill the Needs of the Community
6. Graduate a Medical School Class with Manageable Debt
