Located on the Galveston Island, UTMB Health enjoys natural beauty of the island with beautiful beach, wild-life, fresh air and seafood. Galveston, also called Ellis Island of South, served as one of the 10 biggest immigrant ports of 19th- and 20th century America (Houston Chronicle, Jemimah Noonoo) and is a home for the Victorian architectural style buildings, Federal style mansions, and Greek revival houses. Many faculty members and fellows live on the island and enjoy what the island has to offer—natural beauty, history, and fresh air and food. Finally, UTMB Health offers an excellent benefits package, retirement options, and various employee support programs.
