We are steadfastly committed to training the next generation of outstanding physicians. Our Office’s major initiatives center around work-life/well-being, educational innovation, health systems science, and professional development.
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.
My favorite aspect of the cardiology fellowship program is how much the fellows support each other and how committed the faculty are to teaching and giving the best care possible to their patients. I especially enjoy our faculty-fellow WhatsApp group, where the faculty and fellows can share interesting cases and journal articles with lively discussion.
