The UT Health Science Center San Antonio is part of a multi-university collaboration to offer a Ph.D. in translational science — a field that melds basic and clinical research that can then be translated into practical patient care. We partner with the UT Health Science Center Houston School of Public Health to offer a dual-degree M.D. and master’s of public health for our medical school students.

UT Health San Antonio is dedicated to three missions: educating the next generation of physicians, investigating the causes and cures of disease, and providing cutting edge medical care. We have world-class research and patient care.
