University of Florida Health Shands Hospital

At the heart of our mission is to provide high-quality clinical care and to promise every patient their best experience possible at UF Health. But our objectives aren’t purely clinical. A huge part of our institutional mission is our focus on education and research. These goals are interconnected. For example, biomedical research can include fundamental scientific work in the lab that contributes to immediate or future breakthroughs, as well as highly translational clinical research that benefits patients while they are in our care. Our robust educational programs train the next generation of health care providers. Everything we do serves to move us along the path of improving health and well-being for our patients, their families and our communities. All these things together propel us forward.
