David A. Spahlinger, M.D., Senior Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs
The clinical faculty of the University of Michigan Medical School fulfills the conjoined missions of education, patient care, and research. Our purpose as a Medical School is to create the next generation of physicians, medical scientists, and other healthcare workers. This is an essential task of society and a core mission of a full-service modern university. In teaching the conceptual basis of modern healthcare, it is expected that the knowledge will be refined and expanded from bench to bedside. Clinical care can at any moment supplant the educational and research duties of academic physicians because when they assume responsibility for clinical care, it becomes the moral priority. Modern clinical medicine depends on systems and collegiality. To deploy the highest level of such care requires that academic clinical faculty work cooperatively to coordinate, develop, and refine systems that maximize quality and value in healthcare, as well as the satisfaction and well being of patients, their families, and healthcare workers. To this end, the clinical faculty of the University of Michigan Medical School have come together to form the Faculty Group Practice.
