I wanted to share with you the SDMS’ 2019 – 2023 Strategic Plan. In the spring of 2019, the SDMS Board met to conduct strategic planning. The goal of the meeting was to review our progress on our previous strategic plan, examine our research on what our members need to succeed as well as the future of ultrasound in healthcare, and formulate a strategic plan for the next few years.
Below is a high-level overview of the updated SDMS Strategic Plan.
