Goals and strategies at the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy

The goals and strategies of the Disciplinary Domain follow a certain hierarchy, from abstract and general to concrete and measurable:

  • Vision and mission
  • Main goals
  • Sub-goals
  • Actions
  • Indicators

There are five main goals, each with several sub-goals. Each sub-goal, in turn, encom-passes a number of actions, which describe what the Disciplinary Domain intends to do to fulfil the goals, and indicators, which are ways to measure goal fulfilment. For each sub-goal, there is also a statement on how it connects to Uppsala University: Mission, Goals and Strategies (UFV 2018/641).

The Disciplinary Domain is a part of Uppsala University, and therefore upholds the free pursuit of knowledge in education and research, and stands up for academic integrity, diversity and quality.

Timespan for goals and strategies

All plans and strategy documents are time-limited by necessity; a changing world will always lead to the re-evaluation of priorities, and the need for new investments and concentrations of resources. These goals and strategies are meant to apply for the period 2021–2026.
