Mayo Clinic Course Addresses Education Gap: Building the Regenerative Medicine Workforce

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Regenerative medicine is redefining clinical care—going beyond disease symptom management to addressing the underlying cause of disease to restore health. Regenerative care is expected to represent 10% of all health care in the next decade. Yet, education in regenerative medicine lags behind scientific and clinical advances. This threatens to leave physicians-in-training ill-equipped to address changing […]
