USF's desire for a teaching hospital reveals tensions with Tampa hospital

St. Petersburg Times, March 27, 2008
A proposal to build a hospital on the University of South Florida campus has stalled, but has exposed tensions between the college and its primary teaching hospital, Tampa General. Leaders at the two institutions have different views on their relationship and their obligations to each other, so a national consulting group will help the two work on how their relationship should be structured. Tensions between the two, for example, contributed to the collapse of USF's anesthesiology training program for graduate medical students in 2006.
