Resource Allocation Inquiry

A recurring point of view raised during the work on Vision:Medfarm was to investigate the allocation of resources to ensure that it provides incentives for the disciplinary domain to move towards the vision.

The Disciplinary Domain Board appointed a resource allocation inquiry. On Monday, 31 October, after almost eight months of work, it was sent for referral to the disciplinary domain, Region Uppsala, Uppsala University Hospital, the student unions and the university administration.

The referral must be answered according to the instructions and received by the disciplinary domain by Tuesday, 14 February 2023, at 16.00.

“A lot is happening at the disciplinary domain and we're developing fast. To be able to feel in control and to feel motivated in our work, a vision is needed... ”

This is how our journey began in 2020, a journey to make Uppsala University's goals and strategies our own. In 2021, we completed the assignment and now the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy has its own sharp strategy: Vision:Medfarm.

It is pleasing to see that so many have participated in the process. Now we can all continue to get involved in this important work, as no strategy is better than its implementation. Implementing a strategy is about getting people to cooperate to achieve results together. I hope that our clear goals will spur us on in our ambitions.

It is my hope that Vision: Medfarm will provide both inspiration and guidance for all employees, students and partners in the coming years.
