Where complex is commonplace
Health care professionals at UT Southwestern are always prepared for what’s next. Our physicians, scientists, and educators are constantly searching for new and better ways to tackle emerging health threats as well as help patients overcome life-threatening diseases. Here, complex is commonplace. Together, we are finding answers and saving lives.
UT Southwestern has built a reputation for taking on rare, challenging cases with phenomenal expertise. That aptitude also extends to the research arena, where our investigators are world-renowned for breakthroughs, and to biomedical education, where the new Peter O’Donnell Jr. School of Public Health and the recently added Department of Biomedical Engineering promise to build on the momentum.
Examples of complexity perfected are numerous: from research involving gene editing to avert heart attack damage to the evolution of a pancreatic robotic surgery program into one of the best in the world.
