The benefit of academic medicine

As Maryland's health care champion, the University of Maryland Medical System brings together clinical care, research and education to ensure patients across the state have access to the highest levels of care.

At the center of our health network is the nationally-renowned University of Maryland Medical Center. Here, physicians deliver highly specialized, innovative care, and, along with experts from the University of Maryland School of Medicine, discover new ways to advance medicine and train the next generation of health professionals.

When you visit a provider in your community, you benefit from a strong partnership between community providers and academic health care experts. Better research. Better treatments. Better outcomes.

That is a better state of care.
