The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center was the first center to combine cancer education, research, and treatment under one roof. As an essential component of our mission, education informs all we do. We are also dedicated to training future leaders in the scientific, medical and allied health disciplines, preparing them to one day serve patients in Texas and the world.
A cornerstone of MD Anderson's education effort is the School of Health Professions, led by Dean Shirley Richmond, Ed.D.
