Welcome from the Office of the Provost

Mouton_2018Welcome to the University of Texas Medical Branch! I am honored to serve UTMB’s Academic Enterprise as Executive Vice President, Provost and Dean of the School of Medicine.

As the first academic medical center in Texas, our institution enjoys a proud history as we look toward a bright future. We have educated generations of health care professionals who have gone on to apply their training to improve countless lives. Looking ahead, I am proud that we continually innovate to stay at the cutting edge of education, research, and clinical care.

Each of UTMB’s four schools is characterized by first-class leadership, faculty, and academic programs. Our focus on interprofessional education prepares trainees from all academic areas to work collaboratively and deliver team-based, patient-centered care that is the standard today.  No matter what program you enter, I have confidence you will gain the knowledge and tools you need to begin a fulfilling, impactful career.

It is my goal for UTMB to be the institution of choice for outstanding students, faculty, and staff who share our strong commitment to advancing health care. I am excited to share all that our institution has to offer. I believe your experience at UTMB will be a transformative one – not only for you, but for all those whose lives you will touch in your career. I am so glad you are here.
