The author discusses the advances in academic medicine and its valuable contribution to human health. The advances in quantity and quality of life have been attributable to health care research and its implementation. Despite the achievements in academic medicine, there is a consensus within health care sector that academic medicine suffers from severe malaise because of the development gap in medical leadership.
