Academic Medical Centers (AMCs) occupy a unique space within the country’s academic environment and its medical field. Despite the world-class status of Academic Medical Centers, this community faces unprecedented issues that threaten the ability of its leading institutions to achieve their missions. They face, among other complex challenges, the effects of increasingly limited research dollars, squeezed endowments, heightened scrutiny of tuition rates, and uncertainties about health care reform. 

Furthermore, the country’s health care system is undergoing profound changes — and there is no clear consensus on the outcome. Against this setting, many academic leaders are evaluating their entire organizations and preparing to make hard choices about which functions to reshape, eliminate, or reorganize. 

At Attain, we specialize in serving the needs of the academic medical center community with a broad range of management consulting, strategic services, and technology solutions. We understand the needs of our clients in this unique field, and specialize in developing strategic financial analyses to assess the overall financial health of the organization— analyzing space productivity for research programs, optimizing resources and incentive plans, evaluating facilities and capital planning, and more.

Our staff of skilled professionals includes seasoned academic medical center administrators and career consultants with extensive relevant subject matter expertise. We know how to work with AMC leaders at every level to examine strategies, resources, organization, and operations. Dedicated to our core values, we bring real value to every engagement, by delivering on-time, on-budget solutions that are practical, cost-effective, and innovative. 

We’re ready to help you perform stronger and advance your core research and teaching mission. To start the dialogue, please contact us.
