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.
I chose the Long School of Medicine because of the amazing residents and staff I get to work with and learn from. My co-residents understand exactly what I am going through and what I need to continue moving forward. Our faculty and staff members value the life I lead outside of the hospital, they celebrate my victories and support my husband and me in the hardships we all inevitably must go through.
