A Message From Dean Jacobs

Acting Dean Jacobs

Dear School of Medicine Alumni,

On Friday, July 1, SLUCare became the academic practice of SSM Health. Since 1995, SLUCare Physician Group has exemplified our commitment to the community, providing excellent health care while training the next generations of health care providers. We are delighted that our SLUCare faculty and staff will continue working together to provide the highest quality of compassionate patient care while educating our medical students, residents and fellows.

This integration will allow us to advance our School of Medicine academic and research mission. Our patients will see more seamless care in our wider network. Our learners will have more educational opportunities. Our clinical faculty and staff will be better supported in the practice. Our partnership will provide financial resources to allow us to recruit new chairs, support research and create new educational opportunities.

We are looking forward to this new chapter in the School of Medicine and soon will be sharing our strategic plan with you.
