Abstract

In light of substantial government subsidies, upcoming demographic shifts, new technologies, and financial downturns, higher education (HE) must adopt new approaches for knowledge creation and knowledge sharing to foster economic development. This chapter explores knowledge sharing in academic medical centers which represent a nexus of higher education and workforce development and they operate as a critical component of medical education in the United States. Particular emphasis is placed on technology and culture in academic medical centers. This chapter concludes that cultural changes and the development of leadership skills are needed in both academic medical centers and higher education to most effectively create and share both tacit and explicit knowledge needed for expertise development.
