Saint Louis University School of Medicine

About the School

Our surgeons were the first to complete a successful heart transplant in the state of Missouri. We’re one of only nine NIH-funded vaccine research institutions in the country. And we operate one of the largest hepatitis C practices in the world.

In short, the medicine we practice is changing lives for the better.

Our work at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine goes beyond training physicians to be scholars of the human body. We graduate doctors who appreciate humanistic medicine, concern themselves with the sanctity of human life and commit to dignity and respect for all patients.
