Resident Appreciation Week Email Header

Welcome to Graduate Medical Education

The Graduate Medical Education (GME) Office is excited to announce Resident Appreciation Week February 17th – 21st, 2020!

Resident Appreciation Week highlights our UTMB Resident/Fellow physicians to the community of Galveston County and honor their contributions to the health of citizens in this area. Our Resident/Fellow physicians come from all over the world to train in one of UTMB’s 50+ GME programs.  The majority of the people from Galveston County will encounter our Resident/Fellow physicians when they visit any UTMB campus. We believe this is an opportunity for the community to understand the life of Resident/Fellow physicians and join with us to express our gratitude for the great service they provide.

Throughout the week, special events will be hosted to celebrate our Residents and Fellows to show them appreciation for their dedication and hard work!                                                                                                                                                                      

The University of Texas Medical Branch has been educating physicians since 1892. UTMB has trained more physicians than any other medical school in Texas. We have a historic and ongoing commitment to Medical Education and the care of underserved populations.

We believe that the best graduate medical education occurs when you have the correct combination of three main elements: committed faculty, modern and efficient facilities, and a diverse patient population. We strive to deliver education in a patient centered environment that demands professionalism from all health care providers. In addition to GME, UTMB has a medical and nursing school, a graduate school, and school of allied health. These multiple groups of learners help to strengthen our overall educational environment.
