No institution had combined patient care with medical education and research before the University of Michigan
Today, we take them for granted. Huge university medical centers, filled with patients who travel miles to receive care that’s available nowhere else, from teams of highly specialized clinicians.
Classrooms hum with the questions and answers of students training for a health or science profession.
These three-in-one institutions are citadels of curiosity and the cutting edge. But where did the idea for the academic medical center come from?
Ann Arbor, Michigan.
