    The future of health care: A conversation with Dr. Atul Gawande

    AAMC President and CEO Darrell G. Kirch, MD, sits down with noted physician, author, and public health researcher Atul Gawande, MD, MPH, to discuss what health care will look like in 20 years.

    As the health care industry progresses into the next two decades and beyond, members of the academic medicine community will be collaborating with one another more than ever before. In this video, surgeon, writer, public health researcher, and CEO of health care company Haven, Atul Gawande, MD, MPH, discusses how teams will need to work together toward common goals to tackle challenges ahead.

    Academic medicine need not lose its humanity in the pursuit of improved care for patients, says Gawande. Medical providers must recognize that health care is a group effort, and no one person has all the answers. Embracing the values of humility, discipline, and teamwork will propel academic medicine forward.
