USC has been selected by the Association of Academic Health Centers International (AAHCI) to participate in the Aligned Institutional Mission (AIM) program.

The multi-year program is designed to better align clinical care, education, and research at academic health centers with guidance and support from the AAHCI’s planning tools and peer consultants.

In the fall, Keck Medicine will host a team of emeriti leaders from academic health centers like University of Pennsylvania and Washington University.

“We are looking forward to hosting these leaders and receiving their advice,” said Randolph Hall, PhD, vice president of research at USC. “In preparation, we are developing strategies toward advancing interprofessional education, mission alignment, population health, knowledge sharing and impact on patients, students, faculty and alumni, seeking input from key stakeholders from throughout USC in the process.”
