Foundation: 1908

Mission: We are an academic medical center with a three-part mission: research, teaching, and clinical care. While the academic portion (research and teaching) is core to the university’s mission, excellence in the clinical practice of medicine is inextricably intertwined with and essential for success in the other parts in the mission of an academic medical center. Without that academic component, there is no reason for us to have a clinical enterprise.

Vision: Leading the Biomedical Revolution in Precision Health. Our unrivaled atmosphere of interdisciplinary exploration and collaboration has produced many of the innovations that sparked a biomedical revolution: MRIs, gene splicing, and stem cell medicine were all born on the Stanford Medicine campus. Today, that same atmosphere, amplified by the astounding intellectual and technological capital that surrounds us in Silicon Valley, gives us an unprecedented opportunity to advance human health.
