SOM Office of Student Affairs and AdmissionsWelcome!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and the School of Medicine. UTMB is the oldest medical school in the State of Texas. We accepted our first class of students in 1891 and have been providing well-trained physicians for the State of Texas for over 100 years.
UTMB is proud of the many unique experiences that are offered here, such as problem based learning, satellite campuses and international experiences that are provided to augment your educational experience. In addition to these we offer several areas of scholarly concentrations that allow a student to have expanded learning experiences in non-specialty based areas of emphasis.
We are committed to working with students to enhance your learning experience and enable each student to achieve their maximum potential.
The mission of the Office of Student Affairs and Admissions is to serve our students beginning with the admissions process through matriculation and, ultimately, graduation and entry into residency training. Our programs include recruiting, admissions, academic and career counseling, and many additional special programs.
This website has been created to give you easy access to on-line information about our programs and to lead you to the people who will provide you support throughout your medical school journey.
Please feel free to stop by our offices or contact us for any information of assistance.
