Has traditional academic medicine had its day?  

Rapid advances in science and technology, increased pressure on health systems and stresses in working environments, the rise of infectious disease crises and other health threats, such as COVID-19 and climate change are challenging the traditional model of academic medicine. In this lecture, Professor Dzau will discuss the threats to academic medicine in a rapidly changing environment and examine how new approaches will be necessary for its future.
