About the School
The primary mission of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine is education at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels for practitioners,
teachers, and researchers, conducted in an environment of exemplary patient care, research, and public service. The School of Medicine's mission is reflected in its programs, which
incorporate four basic interrelated goals:
- to provide educational opportunities for Connecticut residents pursuing careers in the patient care professions, education, public health, biomedical and/or behavioral sciences;
- to advance knowledge through basic, biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social research;
- to develop, demonstrate, and deliver health care services based on effectiveness, efficiency, and the application of the latest advances in clinical and health care research;
- to help health care professionals maintain their competence through continuing education programs.
