What impact will a medical school have on the university and its research endeavor? Simply put, medical schools that perform research are at the front lines of scientific innovation and discovery. They conduct sophisticated studies on diseases, drugs, and procedures that advance the practice of medicine, and they train their students to think outside the box about established courses of treatment. They also attract highly motivated faculty and students — the type of pioneering scientists and scholars who produce breakthroughs with real-world applications and commercialization potential.
