Discover, Educate and Heal at the University of Texas Southwestern

As a leading academic medical center, UT Southwestern has three primary functions – discover, educate, and heal – that converge on a single, all-encompassing mission: promoting health and a healthy society that enables achievement of full human potential.

We Discover – Since UT Southwestern’s founding in 1943, research has been the cornerstone upon which the institution’s outstanding medical education and patient care have been built. The discoveries of UTSW’s Nobel Laureates and other leading physicians and scientists on faculty have not only transformed science and medicine and set a standard of scientific excellence but also helped establish a well-entrenched culture of collaboration and collegiality, making UTSW a very special academic environment in which to work and study.

We Educate – UT Southwestern Medical Center has three degree-granting institutions: UT Southwestern Medical School, UT Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and UT Southwestern School of Health Professions. The schools train about 3,600 medical, graduate, and health profession students, residents, and postdoctoral fellows each year. Additionally, more than 100 early career researchers have come through the Medical Center’s acclaimed Endowed Scholars Program in Medical Science, and many have gone on to become leaders in their fields.

We Heal – UT Southwestern faculty and residents provide care in about 80 specialties to more than 105,000 hospitalized patients and oversee approximately 3 million outpatient visits annually. UTSW faculty physicians, as members of the UTSW Medical Group, see patients at dozens of outpatient clinics on campus, at UT Southwestern’s William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and its Zale Lipshy Pavilion, which are owned and operated by the University itself, and at partners Parkland Health & Hospital System, Children’s Health, Scottish Rite for Children, VA North Texas Health Care System, and other affiliated hospitals and community clinics whose operations are controlled independently of the University.
