    AMCs co-locate clinical care, teaching and research. The concept of the AMC has evolved since the 1960s and commonly refers to the combination of a teaching hospital and a university. In connecting accredited hospitals with one or more universities, AMCs typically provide secondary to quaternary level patient care and undergraduate to postgraduate (vocational) training of health professionals in multiple courses including M. D. degree; AMCs also typically comprise basic research centers and the means and venues to translate basic research to clinical application. A more recent terminology is "academic health sciences centers."
