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.
The Long School of Medicine Department of Orthopaedics provides a robust, high volume residency that ensures each resident is competent and technically sound at the end of their training. As my top choice, I was attracted to the faculty mentorship, also the cohesiveness and ‘swagger’ that the residents exuded better than anywhere else.
