Because of the efforts of faculty, students and staff, supported by our community partners, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is a comprehensive academic health center and Tier One research university.

In today’s complicated health care environment, collaborations and partnerships are essential to our success. Our ambition is for the UT Health Science Center to be recognized among the elite academic health centers in our country.

The Strategic Plan outlined herein serves as a compass for our work. This road map aligns us with the goals of The University of Texas System’s Framework for Advancing Excellence. Faculty, staff, students and community leaders have been engaged to develop this comprehensive Plan that we will be proud to implement across all of our campuses in San Antonio and South Texas.

The Plan addresses strategies in the following areas: education, research, health care, community engagement and organizational effectiveness. It provides a plan of action while requiring ongoing assessments of progress. The Plan will likely require adjustments in several areas in order to maximize success, for example, in the area of the rapidly evolving South Texas programs.

With your continuing support, we will reach our goals in all of the mission areas: teaching, discovery, healing and service. Thank you for traveling on the journey with us.
