General Information

The University of Texas Medical Branch offers 25 residencies and 33 subspecialty fellowship programs. All residency programs meet the accreditation standards of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Medical Specialties. In addition to the accredited programs, several departments offer subspecialty fellowships in areas not requiring accreditation—all are approved by the Texas Medical Board for issuance of physician-in-training permits to individuals not yet permanently licensed in Texas. The individual program directors and their departments conduct the recruiting, training, evaluating, and managing of the specific programs listed below. The Graduate Medical Education Committee and the Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education are responsible for general oversight and monitoring of all these programs including regular internal reviews.

Teaching Hospitals
Most of the clinical experience in the UTMB residency programs at Galveston is provided in the UTMB Hospitals and Clinics, the only general categorical hospital owned and operated by the State of Texas and attracting patients from the entire state. Included in this complex is the UTMB-TDCJ Hospital at Galveston. Affiliated teaching hospitals include the Shriners Burn Hospital at Galveston, Texas, and Driscoll Children’s Hospital at Corpus Christi, Texas.
