Welcome to UTMB HealthFrom President Jochen Reiser, MD, PhD

As President of The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB Health), I am humbled by the legacy of this great institution, and I am honored to lead its large family of faculty, staff and students who are dedicated to innovation, compassion and excellence.

At UTMB Health, we have an unwavering commitment to fulfill our three missions—providing the best patient care to our growing communities, educating the health care workforce of the future, advancing biomedical science and innovation in our research laboratories.

As a physician-scientist and educator, I am inspired by the opportunity to build upon our legacy—pursuing all missions equally while not allowing one to prevail at the expense of the others—to reach ever-greater heights of excellence together.
