The IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) welcomes Darrell G. Kirch, M.D., president and chief executive officer of the Associate of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), to the IUPUI campus as part of its CTL Winter Lecture Series.
This lecture series honors nationally recognized scholars who have made a contribution to their discipline as well as teaching and learning within their discipline.
The nation’s political gridlock, economic outlook, and high health care spending coupled with poor outcomes have converged in an unprecedented manner to present daunting challenges for academic medical centers, while also opening a remarkable window of opportunity for them. There has never been a better time to fundamentally redesign the health care system, which stands at the epicenter of many of the nation’s challenges. However, in order for it to play a leadership role in this redesign of health care, academic medicine will need to make transformational changes in how it meets its missions of education, research, clinical care, and community engagement. Dr. Kirch
will discuss how the Indiana University School of Medicine and academic medicine at large can respond to this leadership imperative and accomplish “true” health care reform.
