Office of Academic Affairs

In its role as the state's only academic medical center, the University of Mississippi Medical Center's Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (OAVCAA) identifies and promotes best practices in health care education to furnish the state and its people with the highest quality health care providers and educators.

To support this academic mission, the faculty and staff of the OAVCAA assist with program assessment, educational innovation, professional growth and advancement, leadership skills, institutional research and other services that will ultimately allow faculty and graduates to deliver the highest standard of care and serve as respected professionals in our communities.

Welcome to the Office of the Academic Affairs

The University of Mississippi Medical Center supports seven health professions schools on its main campus in Jackson and successfully graduates roughly 1000 health care professionals each year, many of whom choose to stay and practice in Mississippi. We work to identify and promote best practices in health care education so that we may furnish the state and its people with practitioners who combine knowledge and professionalism with compassion and caring.
