UW Medicine Advancement

The Mission

UW Medicine’s mission is to improve the health of the public, and our faculty and staff pursue this mission in three major ways. The first is providing excellent and compassionate care to our patients. The second is conducting leading-edge medical research. The third is providing medical students, doctoral candidates, physician assistants and other trainees with the best in medical education.

UW Medicine’s strength is in collaboration and integration; a doctor may also be a researcher; a teacher may also be a doctor. The three disciplines reinforce each other, and the result is a research, teaching and patient-care powerhouse recognized nationally and internationally for advancing medicine.

The Entities

UW Medicine consists of eight entities that work together in patient care, research and teaching. They include: Harborview Medical Center, Northwest Hospital & Medical Center, Valley Medical Center, UW Medical Center, UW Neighborhood Clinics, UW Physicians, the UW School of Medicine and Airlift Northwest.
