Key Initiatives

Higher Purpose

Everything we do centers on bringing our mission of educating students, physicians and biomedical scholars to life. Collaboration and engagement at all levels accelerate our ability to provide the highest quality spectrum of comprehensive knowledge, research, patient care and service. More than just keeping up with the changes in medicine, we’re setting the course.

The University of Michigan Medical School fosters a visionary culture. The changes proposed in our recent curriculum transformation reflect our efforts to attract, encourage, and reward those who have grand ideas and wish to improve the world of medicine.

Physicians talking at a desk

Conducting research, teaching and delivering clinical care with the highest ethical standards is a privilege we honor every day at the U-M Medical School. Our responsibility is to the public and their trust in our activities are at the forefront in all of the work that we do.

Physician with patient

Not only do our faculty, staff, students and trainees lead and participate in international initiatives in research, education, and collaborations in health; they also bring knowledge gained during their outreach back to campus for the benefit of our community.

Students in the Doctors of Tomorrow program

Training tomorrow’s best doctors and researchers means ensuring that the brightest learners have direct access to stimulating mentors, outstanding resources and an inclusive community.
