Academic medicine and the power of partnership

Academic medicine grants public access to new academic knowledge that greatly improves the quality of health care and patients’ lives. It does so through the fulfillment of three integrated, interdependent missions:

  • to achieve medical breakthroughs;
  • to educate each new generation of physicians; and
  • through these physicians, to bring that new knowledge to patients with critical, complex illnesses that can be treated only with breakthrough therapies.

In Minnesota, academic medicine is embodied in the partnership between the University of Minnesota and Fairview Health Services. The University achieves medical breakthroughs. But to truly make a difference, these discoveries must be applied. And the more rapidly and broadly they can be applied, the more new therapies and cures can reach those in need—saving lives and improving health.
