Ann Arbor, Mich—At its landmark 150-year anniversary, the University of Michigan Medical Center is located on the same site where it was founded in 1850. Its modern boundaries are still defined on one side by the university's main Ann Arbor campus and on the other by the scenic parkland that surrounds the Huron River.
Howard Markel, MD, PhD, director of the university's Historical Center for Health Sciences, says that the medical center's physical location both symbolizes and contributes to its historical strengths and priorities. Its proximity to the university's diverse intellectual resources has fostered a spirit of multidisciplinary innovation. And its views of the open midwestern landscape speak of the medical school's long tradition of service to all of the state's residents, as expressed by its original mission to provide medical training for Michigan physicians and its early opportunities for women and minority students. These dual priorities continue to inspire innovations in medical education, clinical medicine, and basic research.
