Thank you for visiting the Medical Staff Services web site. This department acts as a liaison between more than 800 members of the medical staff and the UTMB Health System's associated hospitals and clinics.

It is our intent to use this site as a mechanism to communicate with you regarding policies, procedures, and expectations; but, equally important, we would like it to evolve to serve as a conduit for processing your medical staff applications and requests for privileges in the future. Additionally, this site can serve as a tool for improved communication regarding projects and executive decisions that impact you, our customers.

Links to the following information are currently available:

  • Contact Us - each clinical department and division has a dedicated Credentialing Specialist in this office whose primary goal is to provide you with great customer service and help you navigate through the credentialing, privileging, and performance evaluation processes

  • Application Documents - these documents can be printed, completed and returned to Medical Staff Services at the time of initial appointment to the medical staff or at reappointment which occurs every 2 years (documents can be scanned and e-mailed, faxed, mailed, or hand delivered to this office)

  • Texas Standardized Credentialing Form and accompanying instructions from the Texas Department of Insurance - required for application and reapplication to the Medical Staff (documents can be completed on line, saved, and then printed and delivered to the this office)

  • Medical Staff Committees - members of these committees serve to balance your interest with those of UTMB and regulatory agencies

  • iPrivileges - this system allows you to search either by practitioner name or by the name of the privilege itself.

    Core privileges have been implemented for most physician forms. Core privileges refers to those clinical activities within a specialty or subspecialty that any appropriately trained, actively participating practitioner would be competent to perform. Special privileges are not considered a part of the core, and require additional training, credentials or demonstration of skill. Specific criteria must be met. Please contact the Medical Staff Office if you have questions about a practitioner’s privileges.

  • Medical Staff Bylaws

  • Medical Staff Dues - departments can use this spreadsheet when paying initial or annual medical staff dues for medical staff members within their respective department. Completed spreadsheets should be returned to Margaret Foreman.

Thank you for your service to UTMB. Your constructive feedback is appreciated.

Best Regards,

Medical Staff Services
