Academic Affairs at LCMC Health

Our mission

LCMC Health Academic Affairs works to develop our academic enterprise across all nine 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.
