Connect regularly with staff and faculty: Maintain a staff, faculty and leadership database. Build links to the faculty group through an annual meeting, annual report, and surveys to proactively identify challenges.
Build and maintain relationships with clinical departments and hospital partners: Provide an annual report, and present once every three years for major stakeholders (Clinical Chairs, regional Hospital meetings)
