Stanford Medicine

An academic medical center, Stanford Medicine comprises three entities: Stanford University School of Medicine; Stanford Health Care; and Stanford Children's Health and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. Our mission is tripartite: to promote fundamental, clinical, and translational discovery; to train the leaders of tomorrow; and to transform patient care.

Under the umbrella of Stanford Medicine, we share a common aspiration to improve human health during this time of unprecedented possibilities in biomedicine. We believe that the patient is at the center of what we do — and that to provide the best care for every patient requires pushing the boundaries of discovery, mentoring the next generation of leaders, and delivering compassionate and coordinated care.

Stanford Medicine has a bold vision to lead the biomedical revolution in Precision Health. By leveraging emerging disciplines from biomedical data science to health care value science, we are developing and defining this next generation of health care that is focused on keeping people healthy and providing care that is tailored to individual variations. We call this Precision Health. It’s predictive, proactive, personalized, and patient-centered.
