An Academic Medical Center is not like an ordinary hospital.
It’s a place with a three-pronged mission – where a medical school, its affiliated hospitals and clinics and its research programs are uniquely combined to lead the way in healthcare.
It’s a place where the next generation of physicians is taught and where medical research thrives. It’s a place where nationally recognized doctors set new standards of excellence and a place where you can expect more.
At University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC), our employees share a commitment to advance medical innovation and quality of care. We employ more than 10,000 individuals who are teachers, physicians, nurses, researchers and many other professionals, all of whom are dedicated to improving lives. And because of this uniqueness, the patient care mission of UMMC can offer one-of-a-kind services such as a Level 1 trauma center, a children’s hospital and organ transplantation, among many other differentiating programs.
We are five health sciences schools, five hospitals and a 450-physician multispecialty practice – united by a common mission: to teach and train the medical professionals of tomorrow and ensure the future of healthcare in Mississippi.
