About Graduate Medical Education (GME)

Mission

Consistent with UT Southwestern’s institutional mission, the mission of the Graduate Medical Education Office at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center is to foster the development of rigorous, high-quality, comprehensive, and culturally relevant graduate medical education programs that enable our residents and fellows to become independent physicians, scholars, and leaders who will improve health care in our community, Texas, our nation, and the world by providing safe, high-quality, and innovative care, both now and in the future.

UT Southwestern is committed to providing an organized educational program with guidance and supervision of residents and fellows, facilitating each resident’s professional and personal development while ensuring safe and appropriate care for patients.  The Institution’s Statement of Commitment to Graduate Medical Education is reviewed and renewed regularly by leadership with input from the Graduate Medical Education Committee.
