Why an Academic Medical Center?
Having the resources of an academic medical center allows for a high level of tertiary care. Complex and revision cases are routinely referred to a facility like ours, which will allow you to gain valuable, unique experience managing complicated cases. Having the access to tertiary level subspecialists in other medical and surgical fields allows for an ease of treatment in these complex cases and can dramatically improve your educational opportunities and experience.
