About UT Southwestern
We are the future of medicine, today!
UT Southwestern Medical Center is headed by Daniel K. Podolsky, M.D., an internationally renowned gastroenterologist and member of the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine).
The faculty has included six Nobel Laureates – four of whom are active faculty members – more than any other medical school in the world.
A new $800 million state-of-the-art clinical facility – the William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital – opened in late 2014. The 12-floor, 460-bed hospital replaced St. Paul University Hospital. Named in honor of the legendary Texas governor in recognition of his 2009 gift of $100 million to the Southwestern Medical Foundation for the benefit of UT Southwestern, the largest single gift in the institution’s history, Clements University Hospital offers patients and medical personnel world-class facilities and technologies.
The 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 allied health students, residents..., and postdoctoral fellows each year.
Two UT Southwestern graduates – one from the Medical School and one from the Graduate School – have won Nobel Prizes.
The Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center has National Cancer Institute (NCI) designation, an elite distinction held by only the top-tier cancer centers nationwide. The Simmons Cancer Center is the only medical center in North Texas to attain this prestigious “gold standard” status, which the NCI bestows upon the nation’s top cancer centers in recognition of innovative research and excellence in patient care.
Ongoing support from federal agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, along with foundations, individuals, and corporations provide more than $489.4 million per year to fund about 5,800 research projects.
The medical center has 13 Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators and four HHMI Faculty Scholars on campus. In 1986, the HHMI selected UT Southwestern to house one of its 12 principal laboratories nationwide.
UT Southwestern Medical Center offers more than 25 residency programs and about 80 clinical subspecialty/fellowship programs located on the Dallas campus and four family practice programs located in surrounding cities.
UT Southwestern has approximately 17,000 employees and an operating budget of $3.4 billion.
More than half of the physicians who practice in the area were trained at UT Southwestern, and in addition to the care provided by UT Southwestern faculty physicians to patients at our affiliated partners, UT Southwestern University Hospitals provide members of the Dallas community access to the most advanced care for the most serious medical problems.
