Educating a diverse future generation of healthcare providers, including through this fellowship, is essential to ensure that the needs of children will be met. Finally, actively participating in research and quality projects will ensure optimized care and treatment breakthroughs are available to give hope to patients in the future. Our dedication to these core areas of education, discovery, and healing also form the foundation of UT Southwestern's mission.
