2015 Senior Administrative/Fiscal Officers

In an environment of shrinking budgets, increased costs, and unceasing demands for improvement, academic health center leaders must continuously reallocate resources to effectively serve their institutional missions. This year’s Senior Administrative/Fiscal Officers (SAFO) Annual Meeting program will focus on Restructuring the Missions and will explore new strategies and best practices in restructuring and resource management. Specific sessions will address the strategically important areas of research, education, and population health management.  Program highlights include:
