UCSD School of Medicine Mission Statement

A quote from the program of the dedication for the School of Medicine's first facility - the Basic Science Building - summarizes the School's underlying philosophy, namely "in Medicine, science and human concern can never be put asunder."

The mission of UCSD School of Medicine is to provide skilled, compassionate physicians well-trained to practice medicine who are sensitive to the needs of the special populations of our region and the nation.

In addition, we strive to build on our exceptional biomedical, behavioral and health services research strengths to extend the boundaries of the art and science of medicine through continued research and the preparation of future academicians. In these ways, we also strive to improve the overall health of the population.
