Preserving M. more than two millenia of medical tradition in today's competitive health care market-place is the challenge now faced by university-affiliated physicians and hospital administrators. To consider what many find the most expedient approach to the problem, a "Conference on the Investor-Related Academic Health Center and Medical Education" was held recently in Phoenix under the sponsorship of the American Medical Association, American Hospital Association, and Association of American Medical Colleges.

The event was organized by the AMA's Section on Medical Schools. Co-chairs of the planning committee were John E. Chapman, MD, dean, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, Tenn, and Stanley S. Bergen, Jr, MD, president, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Newark.
