Welcome from the President

On behalf of the Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland (RAMI), I am delighted to present the new Strategic Plan 2017-2019, which sets out our Mission, our key Strategic Objectives and expected Outcomes for the next three years.

Since its inception in 1882, RAMI has served its primary role of providing a forum for the exchange of scientific information and to promote academic discussion, essential to scientific progress. Building on our rich legacy, we are proud to continue a tradition of excellence by providing a strong platform for advocacy and facilitating and supporting the pursuit of excellence in clinical practice, research and education.

Our strategic plan is informed by feedback from RAMI members through an extensive survey, a series of external consultations with eminent colleagues from the medical fraternity and a comprehensive strategic planning process involving RAMI Executive team. We are proud that the strategic plan has helped clarify our work, mission and the overall direction for RAMI over the next three years.

My appreciation goes out to members of the Executive Team for their enthusiasm and participation in the strategy development process. My sincere gratitude to RAMI members and fellows who have extended continued support. I wish to extend our special thanks to Prospectus Management Consultants for facilitating our workshops and providing independent external insights that were invaluable.

It is the first time that a RAMI Strategy has been developed and as such the task required a great deal of flexibility, discussion and commitment from all involved. On behalf of the Executive team, I invite you to peruse the plan and share our excitement about next steps. While acknowledging the potential challenges to non-profit organizations, we have identified seven strategic objectives which have been priortised for implementation over the next three years.

We look forward to a further three years of working together guided by this comprehensive Strategic Plan which sets out the parameters within which the work of the Executive Team will be carried out. We are confident that with the expertise, skills and experience of everyone, we will see successful attainment of all our strategic objectives.
