2012 AAMC - Day Three
Monday – November 5, 2012
What if you gathered together the greatest minds in academic medicine?
Every year, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) does just that. At the 2012 AAMC, University of Utah Health Sciences sent our Algorithms for Innovation film crew to interview thought leaders from around the country to learn what they were thinking about innovation, creativity, discovery and the future at the 2012 AAMC Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
