The global academic healthcare community is becoming increasingly interconnected as patients, students, professionals, and diseases cross international borders with greater ease and frequency. Due to the global nature of health, economic, and population concerns, there is now a critical junction of need and opportunity for academic health centers to work in partnership worldwide, and, in doing so, be among the critical forces shaping the 21st century. As an organized group, academic health centers can address pressing needs in public health, patient care, health professions education, and biomedical and clinical research with the ideal of improving the public good.
