DETROIT -- Wayne State University and Henry Ford Health System say they've started serious talks toward forming a partnership for medical education, research and clinical services.
They announced Tuesday they've agreed to start "extensive and formal discussions" over 90 days with a goal of implementing an agreement by mid-2010.
The university has a long partnership with the Detroit Medical Center. Medical school Dean Valerie Parisi says the talks have no bearing on that relationship.
Wayne State says it has the nation's largest single-campus medical school, with 1,200 medical students and 400 master's and doctoral students at its Detroit campus.
Detroit-based Henry Ford operates seven hospitals and 27 medical centers.
