he University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) in Baltimore is
an academic medical center, or "teaching hospital," because all
of its physicians are faculty at the University of Maryland School
of Medicine, one of the nation's top medical schools and research
institutions. UMMC is on a downtown campus that includes buildings for conducting scientific research and educating students in the
UM Baltimore Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Social Work, Dentistry and
Law. If you're injured or diagnosed with a disease, your care would likely start at
