All of UT Southwestern Medical Center's activities are directed toward four goals:
- To improve health care in our community, Texas, our nation, and the world through innovation and education
- To educate the next generation of leaders in patient care, biomedical science, and disease prevention
- To conduct high-impact, internationally recognized research
- To deliver patient care that brings UT Southwestern's scientific advances to the bedside—focusing on quality, safety, and service
We accomplish these goals in a collaborative environment where researchers, including five Nobel Prize-winning scientists (one emeritus), share ideas with primary caregivers. Through our top-rated schools, hospitals, dozens of clinics and care centers, and leading-edge biomedical research labs, UT Southwestern employs a talented, diverse workforce.
