          the operations of individual institutions are consistent with the             
          overall mission of the group of institutions.                                 
               In 1983, the Schools and the affiliated teaching hospitals               
          responded to the new accreditation standards by entering into a               
          contract entitled “The Graduate Medical and Dental Education                  
          Consortium of Buffalo” (the Consortium Agreement).  The                       
          Consortium Agreement created a membership organization (the                   
          Consortium) comprising the Schools and several affiliated                     
          teaching hospitals.                                                           
               Through the Consortium Agreement, decision-making related to             
          the conduct of clinical training programs was centralized, and                
          the Consortium became the sole sponsoring institution with                    
          ultimate responsibility for all clinical training programs                    
          conducted at any of the hospitals.  The Consortium Agreement
