School of Medicine


Washington University School of Medicine is dedicated to improving human health throughout the world. As leaders in patient care, research and education, our faculty members have contributed many discoveries and innovations to basic science and clinical medicine since the founding of the School of Medicine in 1891.

The School of Medicine received more than $596 million in gifts and grants during the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010. Our faculty, staff and students are committed to advancing the application of research discoveries to clinical care through multidisciplinary collaborations, such as BioMed 21. Our clinical faculty oversee a wide array of clinical trials, which offer patients the opportunity to participate in the evaluation of innovative treatments and prevention strategies.

Washington University physicians provide care for more than 430,000 children and adults at 49 clinical sites each year. Washington University provides clinical services in partnership with Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children's Hospital, both of which are nationally-recognized, world-class teaching hospitals on the campus of Washington University Medical Center.

Our educational programs train physicians, scientists and medical professionals for careers in the biomedical sciences. An education from Washington University School of Medicine provides graduates with solid opportunities for highly sought-after residencies and fellowships, engaging research endeavors, and successful and rewarding careers in medicine and public health.
