AMPATH: Leading with Care

As academic health centers, the North American partners who form the AMPATH Consortium are guided by a tripartite mission that includes patient care (service), education (training), and research. While education and research are critically important to achieving our goals, AMPATH is determined to lead with care. All members of AMPATH prioritize patient care and service, since we work with populations that are terribly underserved in health. Service is the foundation upon which the necessary training and research is conducted. In addition, leading with care often helps to establish the belief that the health conditions of populations can be improved.
