Academic Medicine Practice

Successful management of an academic medical enterprise is more challenging than it has ever been, requiring an increasingly wide range of skills to balance the diverse missions of academics, research, teaching, and complex, ever-changing clinical delivery systems.

Each medical school is different. Research- intensive medical schools are as different as those who do some research but are mostly clinically focused, as are teaching focused medical schools. Attracting leaders with the personal and professional characteristics to match the schools' mission is imperative to ensuring success and requires the counsel of an experienced search partner.
