Other Regions in Texas "Piney Woods to Texas Prairies"

Blue bonnets. Barbecue. Friday night lights. Skies full of stars, and space to feel free. While UTMB’s main campus is on Galveston Island, the university’s reach extends far across the state. Sure, we have more than 25,000 alumni and 4,500 physician alumni practicing medicine in Texas (the highest number from any Texas medical school). But UTMB also plays a hands-on role in health-related activities from the piney woods of East Texas to the citrus groves of South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, and points as far north as bustling Dallas and beyond.

While these UTMB employees may be far flung, their work in educational outreach and clinical care is an integral part of our mission. The communities they live in are as varied as Texas is large. Often these are smaller communities steeped in history, with strong ties to the land and nature—great places to raise families. Or, they might be in the shadow of some of the nation's largest and most prosperous metropolitans, cities such as Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth, with all the opportunities and excitement that big cities offer, with a Texas twist.

Montgomery is just one of the great communities in Texas where UTMB employees who work away from the main campus live and play.
