    AIM Program

    AIM and AIM Connect

    The AIM Program respects the diversity and cultural heterogeneity of member institutions around the world. AIM is not a “one size fits all” program.

    The AIM Program is a voluntary opportunity for organizations to:

    1. Set and meet strategic goals.
    2. Measure organizational alignment.
    3. Benchmark success in achieving Steps 1 and 2 above.

    The yearlong program is designed to support continuous activity in organizational development and alignment. Options are available for those institutions that wish to continue engagement upon completion of the one-year program, including virtual options through AIM CONNECT.

    How the Program Works

    Each participating institution commits to implementing a self-defined plan for improved organizational performance, with the goal of achieving an optimally aligned academic health center among its missions of education, research, and patient care.

    The program consists of three phases:

    • Phase I: Program tool for internal assessment and goal setting.
    • Phase II: Peer consultant review period.
    • Phase III: Peer consultant recommendations and strategic improvement planning period.

    Core Components

    The AIM Program focuses on the core components of academic health center organizational performance:
