Graduate Medical Education

The Office of Graduate Medical Education (GME) provides oversight for over 50 ACGME-accredited residency and fellowship programs and nearly 30 Non-ACGME fellowship programs, with more than 700 residents who work and learn on the San Antonio and Lower Rio Grande Valley campuses in our teaching hospitals. The GME Office works cooperatively with the GME Committee, program directors, program coordinators, faculty, trainees, and with our health system partners to maintain the quality of the educational experience and appropriate clinical learning environment of every resident and fellow. We look forward to sharing our experience with you!
