The UTMB Surgical Outcomes Research Program was formally established in 2016 to address the increasing priority of integrating health services research into the advancement of surgical care. The program provides support, resources, and a collaborative environment to facilitate surgical health services research at UTMB. Building collaborations within and outside UTMB is the hallmark of our success as published in several high-impact journals such as JAMA Surgery and JNCI. The program is also committed to career development and training for the next generation of researchers pursuing health services research in the field of surgery.
