UTMB Living, Communities & Schools Living options for the UTMB family


Dr. David L. Callender UTMB President

Welcome from President David L. Callender, MD, MBA, FACS

Welcome to UTMB Living, an introduction to the wealth of living options available to those joining our UTMB family.

No matter where you and your family may choose to live within the Galveston/Houston region, you can enjoy a mild, sub-tropical climate year-round, some of the most affordable housing in the nation, excellent educational opportunities, abundant leisure and cultural activities, and the advantages of a small-town feel within minutes of big city amenities offered by the 4th largest metropolis in the U.S.

I invite you to explore this helpful site, which breaks down the various living options within regions served by UTMB, including Galveston Island, Clear Lake, Southwest Houston, “great American towns’’ along the Interstate 45 corridor, and other regions of Texas. The site includes useful information regarding housing, education, and the unique qualities of individual cities.

For those joining us at UTMB, welcome to our great institution and to the pivotal role you will play with us as we define the future of health care.
