VISION 2028 | Our New Strategic Direction

Steven Paul Miller, MDCM MAS FRCPC Professor and Head, Dept Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, UBC, Chief Pediatric Medicine, BC Children’s Hospital


Since I rejoined the Department of Pediatrics in the Spring of 2022, we have established that with a collective voice, we aspire to grow as a thriving community driving excellence and integration in pediatric care, research, and education that enables the best potential for every child, youth and caregiver in BC and beyond.

With this in mind, we are proud to be sharing our new strategic plan, VISION 2028: Inspiring a brighter future of pediatric health through inclusion and innovation.

Through a collaborative process throughout all levels of our organization and across the province, we have refined our Department’s priorities into four strategic pillars. In this plan, we propose to integrate our roles in clinical care, education, research and child-health leadership.

Several key aspirations and values that reflect our community have been distilled in our new strategic plan to reflect: a deep commitment to health justice and health equity; a desire to broaden collaborations with health authorities and strengthen work with Child Health BC (CHBC) to ensure that the highest quality of clinical care is provided across the province; a pledge to continue to strive for scholarly excellence, and above all, a dedication to create a supportive work environment for all that is rooted in compassion and respect.

Priority 1: Increase our capacity for high quality equitable pediatric care

Priority 4: Nurture a thriving community of faculty, staff, and learners
