Strategic Initiatives


The Strategic Initiatives Office helps to ensure the financial sustainability of the MSKSC ACP for funding of key programmes and initiatives in the three pillars of Research, Education and Clinical Services as well as the associated support required. It involves planning for the infrastructural requirements under the MSKSC ACP.

The Strategic Initiatives Office works closely with the surgical faculty, medical students as well as the industry to adopt new ideas in our clinical practice. Technologies identified for development include robotics, minimally-invasive and navigation surgery etc.

Strategic Initiatives Structure


An endowment and philanthropy sub-pillar will be established to focus on fundraising activities for the MSKSC ACP. The Office will work with the various disciplines to identify project infrastructural needs as well as collaborate with institutional and external stakeholders to operationalize these requirements.

In addition, the Office will engage in strategic talent management and retention activities, as well as identify new practices and technologies in patient care delivery. A centralised data analytics framework will also be developed to support the informational requirements of research, education and clinical services.
