<p>The importance of establishing priorities is self-evident, and the priorities I outlined soon after I became chancellor last year – <a href="http://ucsfchancellor.ucsf.edu/priorities/patientshealth"><strong>Patients and Health</strong></a>, <a href="http://ucsfchancellor.ucsf.edu/priorities/discovery"><strong>Discovery</strong></a>, <a href="http://ucsfchancellor.ucsf.edu/priorities/education"><strong>Education</strong></a>, <a href="http://ucsfchancellor.ucsf.edu/priorities/people"><strong>People</strong></a> and <a href="http://ucsfchancellor.ucsf.edu/priorities/business"><strong>Business</strong></a> – are at once obvious and imperative. They’re obvious, given the mission of higher education in general and UCSF in particular. They’re imperative because they are the lifeblood of UCSF, an institution I have known and loved for nearly three decades.</p>
<p>My job is to breathe life into those priorities, to make them more than just words, to connect the dots and to show how they relate to one another. My job is also to inspire people to attain goals attached to those priorities in ways that are innovative and of global importance. It’s also the role of the chancellor to provide coherence for what we’re doing, along with a roadmap for where we’re going.</p>
<p>The five priorities reflect in very real ways who we are and what we do. And they are intrinsically interconnected. Excellent, patient-centric health care can’t exist without UCSF’s outstanding people. Discovery is, to my mind, inextricably linked to clinical outcomes. Business may seem outside the mainstream, but we simply have to learn how to manage ourselves more efficiently if we are to achieve all our aims with limited resources. And education hardly stands in isolation; it is at the core of everything we do.</p>
<p>The priorities are also a blueprint we can use to maintain our position as a world leader in biomedical research and outstanding health care. As a community and as individuals, we strive to make a difference by cultivating good health and well-being in the United States and beyond. And in making differences both small and profound, we’re changing the world for the better.</p>
