The Task Force recommends that the AHC become a center of excellence in complementary care and serve Minnesota and the nation through the conduct of research, and the development of innovative, interdisciplinary models of education and patient care that reflect an integration of conventional, complementary, spiritual and culturally-appropriate approaches to healing. The Task Force acknowledges that change of the magnitude and scope proposed will be transformative in that it will impact nearly every facet of the Academic Health Center from student selection, student life and curriculum to the research agenda, faculty incentives and rewards, and the environmental context in which faculty, staff and students work and study.
