This collaboration is one of our key strengths, allowing our faculty to draw on a variety of disciplines and techniques as they pursue solutions to some of medicine's most complex problems.

A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result. A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources. And a project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. So a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different functional areas and across multiple geographies.
Note: Work typically associated with this level is well defined but with some open-ended parameters and has a broad scope/impact on the organization. In addition the work is complex with frequent requirements to choose among various solutions or options. A moderate degree of ambiguity is expected in the work.
