Are you interested in leading a technical transformation effort for a critical campus healthcare unit? Do you love to collaborate with many different stakeholders and oversee multiple projects to success? The Division of Information Technology Project Management Office (PMO) is seeking a Program Manager to do all this and more for University Health Services (UHS).
Since its founding in 1848, UW-Madison campus has been a catalyst for the extraordinary. As a public land-grant university and prolific research institution, our students, staff, and faculty members partake in a world-class education and solve real-world problems. We've changed the way the nation takes its vitamins and brought flamingos to Bascom Hill. We've inspired satirists and senators alike. We've fearlessly sifted and winnowed to find today's truths. And with the Wisconsin Idea as our guiding principle, we're not only changing the 936 acres we call home Badgers are also creating a better future for Wisconsin, the nation, and the world.
UW-Madison consists of 13 schools and colleges, over 24,000 faculty/staff, a student enrollment of over 45,000, and in excess of $1.3B in annual research expenditures.
The PMO helps individuals and groups achieve their project goals. PMO professionals help define a clear path to project success, identify and resolve issues and conflicts, and keep experts and stakeholders focused on what matters. The PMO is involved in projects both IT-centric and IT-adjacent.
ABOUT THE GROUP
We play a critical role in the university's major information and technology efforts. Our PMO is responsible for many of the university's most prominent IT projects, including networking, virtualization, COVID-19 response, and administrative transformation. Recently, the PMO has added the position of program manager to the mix of capabilities coordinated by the office taking our services to the next level.
The PMO is all about collaboration and delivering results. Business analysts, project managers, portfolio managers, program managers, and our campus partners all collaborate to architect, design, and build IT capabilities relied upon by the campus.
UNIVERSITY HEALTH SERVICES (UHS)
UHS is a leader in college health. University Health Services is dedicated to providing high-quality health care and wellness services for students. These efforts contribute to a healthy environment for the entire UW-Madison campus community. UHS's goal is to promote, protect, and restore the health and wellbeing of the campus community. We do so by eliminating barriers to access to care and providing robust, population-level prevention programming. UHS is committed to creating an inclusive environment.
UHS offers medical, mental health, prevention, and survivor services on top of administrative functions of human resources, finance, informatics, health information management, marketing, and health insurance billing.
More than 300 people work at UHS, including 100 student staff. In a typical year, UHS provides more than 100,000 patient visits in Medical and Mental Health Services.
We need an experienced professional who can collaboratively create and advocate for the current and future IT needs of University Health Services. UHS is undergoing a massive IT upgrade process spanning hardware, software, identity (active directory), hardwired networks, wireless networks, data center, server hosting, application hosting, business function review, and more. Technology will support the mission and vision of UHS as it works to take care of the health needs of our campus.
Your work will further and communicate that vision, working closely with university stakeholders and taking into account the complexities that are part of a large, highly decentralized, R1 campus. You will need to build collaborations and trust, understand leadership vision, and propose a course for our future.
Our group of program managers are a small but sophisticated team. Our relative size means everyone fully participates in the work.
You'll add to and champion the creative energy of our group as we work together to try new ideas, tools and techniques. We embrace learning and expect you to as well!
WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU
We need you to set the course for the future of information technology supporting University Health Services. We need you to strategize with our stakeholders, understand the dependencies across the organization, and articulate our future. Most critically, we need you to be passionate about IT serving UHS needs, identifying and advocating for the providers, nurses, mental health professionals, and staff of UHS. We need you to thrive in building collaborations and designing solutions to IT challenges. We need you to take initiative, to provide both daily leadership and big picture vision, and to crave learning new things.
