"Faculty members are not only leaders in their respective fields, but they also have the ability to teach what they know in a compassionate, effective manner. They truly are top-notch. The faculty is what makes UT Southwestern such an amazing place for students to train," said Weilan Zuo, M.D., Class of 2011.

We’re among the country's leaders in terms of membership in scientific organizations such as the National Academy of Sciences, the Association of American Physicians, the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine), and the American Society for Clinical Investigation.

UT Southwestern graduates perennially identify the faculty – their teaching skills and accessibility – as one of the great strengths of our institution.

Educating Physicians Beyond Medical School

Our faculty members continue to educate physicians beyond medical school. They annually train more than 1,500 clinical residents, who are supplementing their M.D. education with postgraduate specialty and subspecialty training.

Faculty members also provide continuing medical education about new techniques to physicians and other health professionals through seminars, teaching rounds, and instruction on and off campus.
