RCSI MATTERS
VALUES
Our values are shaped by the primacy of creating an
environment of trust and mutual understanding. We commit
to transparency, integrity and respect for all persons who
engage with RCSI: students, staff, patients and the general
public.
We provide a nurturing, social and inclusive community
conducive to collaboration and development. It is a
key tenet of our value framework that a stimulating and
challenging environment promotes excellence in teaching
and learning. The fostering of a culture of discovery creates
research with impact and an entrepreneurial energy,
balanced with disciplined financial stewardship to secure
our independence.
FIVE STRATEGIC GOALS
The foundations of our strategy are growth and excellence.
We see our future success as contingent on our ability to
grow RCSI's international presence and reputation as a
centre of excellence in healthcare professional education.
Our strategic plan sets out five goals, to which we are
committed, along with a roadmap of how we will address
these goals and key performance measures for their
success.
