The book provides comprehensive and forward-thinking perspectives that are of deep value to those who lead and work at academic health centers as well as those interested in the future of health professions education, biomedical and clinical research, and patient care and population health.

The book consists of 25 chapters that include compelling case studies, professional best practices, and provocative assessments, and is divided into four main sections: (I) The Evolution of the Academic Health Center; (II) Educating the Future Health Workforce; (III) The Challenge of Discovery; and (IV) Preparing for Health System Change.

A broad array of timely topics are addressed; each chapter, while effective as a stand-alone piece, adds to what is essentially a comprehensive text book for the field. The chapters are insightful and informative and come to fruition at this critical time for academic health centers.
