Review of College of Medicine

Date: Wednesday, June 3, 2020

Collegiate Review, Spring 2019

University of Iowa policy requires that all colleges undergo regular reviews at least every seven years (Operations ManualPart II 28.2).  To comply with this policy, the Office of the Provost charged a committee to review the College of Medicine in Spring 2019.  The committee was asked to conduct a focused review on criteria related to medical school rankings, research productivity by department, metrics related to admitted medical students, faculty awards, research infrastructure, and identifying opportunities available to the Carver College of Medicine for improvement and/or expansion in the areas listed above. A draft of the review was shared with you in Fall 2019 and I want to thank all of you who provided comments and suggestions.  The final review document is now complete and has been submitted to the Carver College of Medicine administration and the Office of the President.  

The review commends the College on its many successful efforts in support of the UI Strategic Plan and the University’s overall mission.  I want to express my sincere appreciation to all of the faculty and staff in the College who contribute to those efforts.  Your work not only makes the University of Iowa a better place, it improves the lives of Iowans and others around the world.  Keep up the good work!
