What is a UMMC Clinical Center?

Centers and institutes at UMMC are units designed to facilitate the contributions of groups to the core missions of education, research and health care. There are three categories - institute, center, clinical center, and external designation centers.

The primary purpose of clinical centers is to provide and coordinate health care for a specific patient population or specific health issue. Clinical centers may also have education and research functions, but their primary purpose is health care delivery.

Each of UMMC's many centers and institutes is dedicated to creating a healthier Mississippi.
