A Brief Introduction to UTMB Health’s Strategic Plan

The entire University of Texas Medical Branch community works together to work wonders every day.


Creating new ways to teach the healing arts and sciences. Growing lungs in a lab. Unlocking the mysteries of the human brain. Combatting chronic and infectious diseases. Making innovative use of technology. Designing healing environments. Providing access to the best care for growing communities.

The examples are varied and nearly limitless, but they all depend on UTMB Health’s ability to plan effectively and adjust to changes in the rapidly evolving fields of health care and academic medicine.

The Strategic Plan defines UTMB Health’s path forward. It serves as the foundation for plans and goals at the entity, department and division level.
