We’re a tight-knit campus inside a big city. From intramural sports to run clubs, you can find ways to balance your life outside classrooms and clinics.
San Antonio’s cost of living is affordable, but you’ll still feel like you’re getting the best of city life when you go to school here. You can stay close to the Medical Center, where our campus resides, or find your best fit on the urban-to-rural spectrum of San Antonio’s neighborhoods.
We offer a wide variety of recognized organizations on campus. Most are professional and discipline-specific. Others are cultural, religious, social or special interest. Want to volunteer? We can help you find a group perfect for you and your professional plans.
Several years ago, an Army colonel and physician approached the Department of Emergency Health Sciences about conducting a pilot program to train Army flight medics as paramedics, whose more rigorous training research had shown meant better outcomes for injured soldiers.
Conducted in 2012, the pilot program was a success and resulted in a five-year, $8.3 million contract to provide paramedic and critical care transport training to all flight medics in the Army, National Guard, and Army Reserve, said Associate Professor and Emergency Health Sciences chair, Lance Villers.
We are proud to present the newly renovated SHP facilities. All faculty, staff, and students are invited to tour our new space and to welcome the new Associate Dean for Research Timothy A. Reistetter, Ph.D., OTR, FAOTA Light refreshments will be provided.
