LCMC Health Academic Affairs

Training the next generation of medical professionals

Our mission

LCMC Health Academic Affairs works to develop our academic enterprise across all 6 system hospitals in alignment with each hospital’s individual mission and vision by coordinating, standardizing, and advancing the Clinical Learning Environment (CLE) that supports and trains our future healthcare workforce. At LCMC Health, education, research and patient care are combined to provide the best possible training for its learners and the best possible care for its patients.

Why choose an Academic Medical Center?

Academic Medical Centers (AMCs) like LCMC Health are focused on so much more than providing the highest quality care to every patient who comes through its doors. Just a few of the benefits that an AMC offers include:

  • Team based care that includes physicians, nurses, researchers, educators and learners all working together to provide the highest quality, most up-to-date medical care
  • Latest technology and recent breakthroughs in medicine
  • Access to clinical trials and research protocols
  • Patients treated at a teaching hospital have up to a 20% higher odds of survival
  • Advanced expertise and availability of specialty and subspecialty physicians
  • Destination center services (like Trauma and Burn Care, Palliative Medicine, Neurointerventional Stroke Services)
