March 30 was National Doctors’ Day — a special day set aside to thank and honor the contributions of physicians around the country. To honor the doctors at UTMB for their commitment to improving health by providing patient-centered health care, educating compassionate, highly skilled health care workers, and advancing medical knowledge through cutting-edge research, this ad was published in the Galveston County Daily News. UTMB physicians were also acknowledged at an appreciation breakfast reception hosted by Donna Sollenberger and Dr. Garland Anderson.

This year, patients expressed their gratitude to physicians by making a donation in their physician's honor to support scholarships for medical students. Over 70 gifts were received to honor over 90 physicians. The physician names are listed here.  These annual scholarships will serve as a tool for recruiting the best and brightest medical students, helping to ensure that UTMB remains a community of our country’s most talented scholars. 

Congratulations and thanks to all of the wonderful UTMB Health physicians!
