University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center


Since its formation in 1943, Southwestern Medical School has grown from a small wartime medical college into UT Southwestern Medical Center, a multifaceted academic institution nationally recognized for its excellence in educating physicians, biomedical scientists, and health care personnel.


 The faculty of more than 2,700 is responsible for groundbreaking medical advances and is committed to translating science-driven research quickly to new clinical treatments. UT Southwestern physicians provide medical care in about 80 specialties to more than 105,000 hospitalized patients, nearly 370,000 emergency room cases, and oversee approximately 3 million outpatient visits a year.


UT Southwestern researchers found, among other results, rare variants of a gene responsible for reduced levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) among African-Americans. Further research showed that moderate decreases in LDL-C, early in life, could have a greatly beneficial effect on cardiovascular disease. Basic research efforts include investigation of the molecular control of circadian rhythms, embryonic development, reproduction, and protein structure.  Funding from federal agencies, foundations, companies and private donors provide approximately $427.3 million per year to fund about 5,800 research projects.


The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UT Southwestern Medical Center is committed to helping our students and postdoctoral appointees achieve their ultimate goal: a promising and successful career in science. Our career development resources are intended to prepare students and postdocs in the biomedical sciences for careers in academic research and beyond.
