At UCI Health Affairs, we do not practice medicine; WE CREATE IT.
As a university-centered, comprehensive healthcare system, we offer the most advanced support for human well-being based on groundbreaking research and delivery of cutting-edge care at the right time and in the best place.
This nation-leading status is achieved by the innovative combination of our world class experts in medicine, nursing, pharmaceutical sciences, public health and integrative health, to produce a uniquely collaborative, team-based synergy. We call this philosophical approach ONE HEALTH. A first-of-its-kind alliance uniting health disciplines, empowered by the entirety of UCI knowledge and resources.
Our shared goal of predicting, preventing and treating illness, produces whole-person, patient-centered care that is precise for individuals and communities. One Health is the vision that directs our mission – to Discover. Teach. Heal. – and three strategic priorities, or pillars, we are pursuing over the next five years.
Three strategic pillars are carried out through the Susan & Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences, UCI Health, and our research centers and institutes.
We are focused on innovation from bench to bedside in education and research, where UCI can distinctively push the boundaries to deliver data-driven, compassionate, precise, whole-person care through:
We are focused on producing equity and this demands that we identify, rectify and prevent health disparities, and educate a diverse healthcare workforce to serve diverse communities.
We are focused on creating healthcare that is optimal for individuals and for communities through the collection, analysis and use of data in an ongoing manner.
