This academic medical institution has a strong focus on education and research and operates a university hospital in Dresden. The school partnered with our organization to explore and implement innovations in medical education. Each year a group of final year medical students were selected to travel to the U.S. and complete rotations in Harvard-affiliated hospitals. This collaboration brought about a comprehensive reform of the school’s medical curriculum. The relationship then expanded to the school’s affiliated teaching hospital, where an initiative to develop the Carus Consilium Sachsen (CCS), a community health care network designed with the goal of improving health care delivery in the region of Saxony. To assist with the development of the CCS network strategy, we drew upon executives and chief administrators within Partners HealthCare—both at the network and hospital level.
