Making Communities Healthier

At the University of Missouri School of Medicine and MU Health Care, our mission is to save and improve lives through exemplary education, research and patient care.

Clinical Strength

We treat mid-Missouri’s most complex cases, providing more than 80 specialties and subspecialties and offering the region’s only Children’s Hospital, Level 1 Trauma Center, Comprehensive Stroke Center and Level IV Epilepsy Center.

Educational Excellence

As one of the pioneers of the patient-based learning curriculum, the MU School of Medicine has a long history of developing high-quality learners who exceed the national average in board scores and are assets to faculty in clinical and research settings.

Research Vision

The MU School of Medicine is just steps away from the colleges of veterinary medicine, agriculture and engineering, so we are perfectly suited for team science. Our new NextGen Precision Health building is a $220 million, 265,000-square-foot research facility hub where scientists and clinicians collaborate with experts in other disciplines. The facility is equipped for every step of the translational research process, from molecular discovery to small- and large-animal testing to human studies.

Work-Life Balance

Columbia is an affordable city of 120,000 where a commute is almost always less than 15 minutes. It is a healthy place to live and raise a family, with spacious parks and 65 miles of trails. Columbia, which routinely makes the lists of the nation’s best places to live, grew around the University of Missouri and knows the value of education and diversity.
