Education

The University at Buffalo’s Academic Health Center brings together the talents of clinicians, educators and researchers in an innovative learning environment that fosters discovery within the health sciences.

Our strengths are in clinical and translational research, inter-professional education and high-impact patient care – which means we provide exceptional training for the next generation of health care practitioners and researchers.

We take health care from the research lab and apply it that knowledge directly to the communities we serve. Our academic health center has the unique ability to take cutting edge clinical research and immediately take that knowledge and apply it to the community: breaking down the walls of health disparities to achieve optimal health care outcomes.
