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.
Clinician Educator Track
The Clinician Educator Track (CET) program is an enrichment opportunity for residents and fellows who would like to improve their teaching skills and learn more about Academic Medicine. Residents and fellows participate in monthly seminars and may be assigned teaching activities through their individual training programs.
The Office for Graduate Medical Education at the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine, in partnership with Humana, will co-sponsor an immersive experience designed to highlight the challenges that exist in addressing health-related-social determinants of health in the current healthcare ecosystem. This is part of an overall strategy to create a more equitable healthcare environment and remove barriers to help our communities in South Texas achieve their best overall health.
It is a privilege to learn from faculty who are trailblazers in their respective fields and genuinely care for our success. Additionally, it is a privilege to be surrounded by excellent, supportive staff who work seamlessly with the teams to provide the highest standard of care to patients. Patients being the ones who ultimately shape us the most.
