Our Commitment

The College of Medicine is part of an up-and-coming Health Science Center committed to the health of Texans through integrated education, research and public service programs that emphasize accessibility and community health. The college remains committed to providing an environment that promotes integrity, compassion and excellence in its future physicians and scientists. An emphasis on organ-systems based instruction in the medical sciences produces individuals with the knowledge, expertise and vision to meet the challenges facing modern medicine.

A Unique Opportunity

For a number of years, Texas has suffered from a shortage of primary care physicians, particularly in rural and underserved areas with a disproportionately low number of primary care physicians. Our hope is that your background, combined with our outstanding medical education, will help develop some of the best physicians available to respond to this need.
