University of Texas Medical Branch School of Medicine Review

University of Texas Medical Branch Secondary Application

Overview

The University of Texas Medical Branch School of Medicine is a 4-year MD-granting program and the first medical school ever in the state of Texas. They welcomed their first class in 1891. In their first year, students learn the basic sciences, while in the second year they transition to studying organ systems. UTMB offers group tutoring and even has a Step 1 Mentor Program to aid students during board prep. A unique aspect of UTMB is the Osler Student Societies. These societies are completely voluntary, but they increase faculty-student interaction, mentorship, community service, and professionalism. The Osler Student Societies participate in events such as Halloween Festivals, academic competitions with proceeds going to a clinic, dinners, and a Bioethics Bowl.

Mission

UTMB will strive to create tomorrow's medicine today by discovery and application of new knowledge, and by inspiring lifelong learning and clinical excellence. We will accomplish this mission through innovative leadership and a steadfast commitment to scholarship and service excellence by:

Educating and inspiring skilled physicians and scientists who are dedicated to lifelong learning and reflect the diversity of the people whom we serve.

Sharing our talents to form partnerships with others--individuals, communities, governments, foundations, schools/universities and industries--in the service of our community, our state and the world.
