In a Q&A interview, Michael E. Cain, MD
, vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences
, describes the years of planning for the new building downtown
and discusses the benefits to students, physicians, researchers and patients. “Everyone who works at an academic health center has to wake up every morning and say this is the place where we want people to come to learn. This is the place where new knowledge of some type is going to be created, and this is the place, if any of us need a physician, where I want to go because I'm not just getting standard of care but, if needed, have the opportunity to participate in new directions for treatment,” Cain said.
