UTMB Clinic Physicians
Because UTMB is a medical teaching facility, you may also talk with or be examined by other physicians, called residents or fellows, who are preparing to become specialists or sub specialists in a particular area of medicine. In addition, medical students from the UTMB School of Medicine often assist faculty physicians. All medical evaluations and care provided by residents, fellows, and medical students are coordinated and closely supervised by one or more of the clinics' faculty physicians.
Since it's founding, UTMB has grown from one building, 23 students and 13 faculty members to a modern health science center with more than 70 major buildings, more than 2,500 students and more than 1,000 faculty.
The 84-acre campus includes four schools, three institutes for advanced study, a major medical library, a network of hospitals and clinics that provide a full range of primary and specialized medical care, an affiliated Shriners Burns Hospital, and numerous research facilities. UTMB is a component of the University of Texas System.
Founded as the state's first medical school in 1891, the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) has served the health care needs of Texans for more than a century with outstanding programs in health science education, patient care, and research.
The legacy continues as the School of Medicine has helped to define health care through a steadfast, four-fold mission of promoting excellence in patient care, education, research and service. Its rich history of the past still thrives in an atmosphere of innovation and growth.
