Report Overview

The U.S. academic medical centers market size was valued at USD 949.0 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.37% from 2023 to 2030. AMCs are widely recognized for delivering comprehensive patient care, conducting extensive research initiatives, and playing a pivotal role in educating upcoming healthcare professionals. These institutions consist of medical schools and affiliated major teaching hospitals. The market is majorly driven by the rising funding for academic & research programs, a growing shortage of physicians across the U.S., and an increasing number of AMCs.

U.S. academic medical centers market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The growing shortage of physicians in primary and specialty care settings is expected to drive the market's growth over the forecast period. The physician shortage could have compounding effects on patient care, specifically the aging population. Medical schools have increased the class sizes to address the country's physician shortage. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, 26 new medical schools opened in the last ten years in the U.S. Moreover, these institutions expanded the enrollment for the courses to ease the shortage of physicians. According to the same source, the number of first-time applicants in medical schools across the U.S. increased by around 21.2%.

AMCs rely on publicly funded programs to sustain their research efforts and cover a substantial portion of their services. The U.S. federal government is the primary source of research funding, constituting a noteworthy segment of the average AMC's income. For instance, in August 2023, USA Health received USD 1.5 million in funding from the U.S. federal government for the pediatric imaging equipment for the USA Health Children’s & Women’s Hospital. Furthermore, Medicare contributes billions annually towards graduate medical education.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the market in the early phase on multiple levels, including the impact on medical students, recruitment & physician shortage, and the financial impacts, among others. Moreover, the pandemic halted the research operations at these centers & adversely affected the research infrastructure and pipelines in many AMCs across the country. For instance, according to an article published in the National Library of Medicine, the AMCs lost around 24% of their research productivity during the pandemic. Moreover, the researchers incurred losses of around USD 2,000 to USD 100,000 per research program.
