Graduate Medical Education

 

 

Welcome to the University of Texas (UT) Health-San Antonio!  We are an innovative, vibrant, and dynamic community comprised of five health sciences schools – the Long School of Medicine, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the School of Nursing, the School of Dentistry, and the School of Health Professions.  The campus climate is dedicated to our People, Passion, and Possibilities.  Our major clinical partners are University Health System, South Texas Veteran’s Health Care System (Audie L. Murphy VA Hospital), Brooke Army Medical Center, and the UT Health-San Antonio/M.D. Anderson Mays Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in South Texas. As the only civilian academic medical center and civilian Level I Trauma Center in the region for adults and pediatrics, we develop the knowledge, people, processes, and medicine to make health happen for our community and beyond.

         

Critical to the success of our institution is the Graduate Medical Education enterprise. With over 850 residents and fellows representing over 80 specialties, we are steadfastly committed to training the next generation of outstanding physicians. We are leaders in enhancing well-being, invited to engage with the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Physician Well-being Symposiums for the past three years.  The Long School of Medicine was recently recognized as a finalist for the Spencer Foreman Award for Outstanding Community Service by the Association of American Medical Colleges. Our Office for GME’s major initiatives center around work-life/well-being, educational innovation, health systems science, and professional development. 

 

The San Antonio area has a population of 2.4 million people, offering all the amenities expected from a major metropolitan area; yet, it is remarkably affordable, diverse, and inviting, ranked 14th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report as one of the “Best Places to Live.”
