Dr. Thomas Fogarty sees a lot wrong with the state of medicine today.

Dr. Fogarty believes there is too much regulation stifling innovation and too many physicians and researchers who aren't making the improvement of patient care their number one priority.

These are not just the opposite of what Dr. Fogarty believes, they are the antithesis of his legendary, half-century-long career in medicine.

The Fogarty Institute For Innovation is Dr. Fogarty's latest venture, one meant to make sure what he stood for, stands.
