This Institutional Self-Assessment Social Accountability Tool (ISAT) assists institutions to become more Socially Accountable to the public and people they serve. It is an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess the globe’s best-known and some lesser known, but worthy, health institutions. The ISAT includes the following core components: student recruitment, selection and support; faculty recruitment and development; what, how and where students learn; research activities; governance and stakeholder engagement; school outcomes; and societal impact. Each core component is divided in four developmental phases and includes milestones, standards and indicators.
The ISAT verification process demonstrates an institution’s dedication to respond to people and society’s priority health needs today and in the future. This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using social responsibilty as a force for good. We provide these institutional profiles so that the public can make intelligent decisions.
