Texas A & M University Health Science Center says

The mission of the HSC is to dedicate the full measure of our resources and abilities to advancing the knowledge and technologies of our professions, and to bringing Texans the finest in health education, promotion and care. Because of our work, people's lives are changed - across our state, around the nation and throughout the world.

Our university is a premier assembly of colleges devoted to educating health professionals and researchers of extraordinary competence and integrity. Our faculty, staff and students are united by a belief that all people, regardless of geography, economics or culture, deserve the benefits of compassionate care, superior science and exceptional health education. The Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC) was established in 1999 after receiving original approval from the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents in September 1997. Created to consolidate major health-related elements within the Texas A&M University System, the TAMHSC serves the people of Texas through a statewide and multidisciplinary approach to community health. Original units in the consolidation included the Texas A&M University College of Medicine, Baylor College of Dentistry, the Institute of Biosciences and Technology, and the then-proposed School of Rural Public Health and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (now School of Graduate Studies).

Since then, the Texas A&M Health Science Center has continued to evolve and grow. It received full 10-year accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 2003, and is up for accreditation again in 2012.
