While Schulich Medicine & Dentistry is widely recognized as facilitating a collegial working environment, we also recognize that the current structure inhibits the collaboration now needed to realize its research and education goals. As such, we recognize that fostering and nurturing partnerships is critical to its success.


  • Grow our relationship with hospitals and community health care organizations, and make our collaborations visible.
  • Strengthen our relationship with the Windsor Campus and leverage its location to attract international learners.
  • Expand community-engaged learning opportunities across the School.
  • Work with communities to draw more Southwestern Ontario students, including those from under-represented groups, into biomedical sciences, public health, dentistry and medicine.
  • Raise our research profile within the region and its communities, and encourage participation among the Southwestern Ontario population.
  • Promote interfaculty and interinstitutional collaborations.
  • Establish and maintain collaborative research and education programs with key global partners.
  • Develop productive partnerships outside academia, including with industry.
  • Enhance engagement with our alumni.
