The article presents an examination into the challenges of integrating educators into academic medical centers. The primary goals of academic medical centers are listed, including education, quality care, and explorative research. The common priority on research asserted by the authors is contrasted with the need to maintain strong educational curricula for learning clinicians. Suggestions are given regarding the development and support of educational faculty members on the institutional roster. Difficulties in properly implementing this process are discussed.
