Mission Statement

Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine (SSOM) is committed to scholarship and the education of medical professionals and biomedical scientists.  Our school, including its faculty, trainees and staff are called to go beyond facts, experimentation, and treatment of disease to prepare people to lead extraordinary lives and treat the human spirit in an environment that encourages innovation, embraces diversity, respects life, and values human dignity.

We believe that thoughtful scholarly excellence, service, stewardship and continuing reflection advance our ability to contribute high-impact research and provide the highest-quality education.  Our Catholic heritage and Jesuit traditions of ethical behavior and scholarly distinction in research and education lead to new knowledge that advances our mission, globally and in the communities we serve.
