    Strategic Plan

    Our Mission

    The mission of Texas A&M Health Science Center is to improve human health and quality of life across the state, around the nation, and throughout the world by achieving excellence in education, research, clinical care, and health promotion.


    Our Strategies for Achieving This Mission

    Education and Training

    Educate a diverse student body to become innovative leaders in health care, public health, and scientific discovery. Foster intensive student learning experiences to allow all students to reach their fullest potential as professionals.

    Research and Innovation

    Facilitate and conduct interdisciplinary, high-impact research that will serve to promote health, prevent and cure disease, and translate into products and services that benefit the general public. Maintain the competitive edge of US-based products/industries by closing gaps between faculty innovations and availability of human drugs/vaccines in the marketplace.

    Clinical Care and Community

    Partner with world-leading clinical care systems, while selectively growing our full-time clinical faculty to achieve key educational, translational, and clinical research objectives. Embrace a culture which is focused on optimization of clinical care delivery, improved patient outcomes, and reduced cost.

    Health Promotion

    Empower people to increase control over and to improve their health through promotion of healthy lifestyles, disease prevention, and early detection/treatment. Advocate for policies that promote socioeconomic, behavioral, environmental, and economic conditions to improve the health of disparate populations.

    Resources and Infrastructure

    Ensure alignment of financial operations and resource utilization with overarching strategic initiatives. Develop a multi-stream set of funding sources to ensure the recruitment and retention of world-class faculty and the development and upkeep of laboratories.

    To this goal, Texas A&M Health Science Center has developed a comprehensive 5-year Strategic Plan which will serve as a guide toward excellence, national prominence, and, most importantly, tangible health improvements for the people it serves.
