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

  • Medical Staff Bylaws

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

Best Regards,
