UTMB Clinic Physicians
The physicians on the UTMB Clinics staff are all members of the Faculty Group Practice of Medicine. Depending on your specific needs, at least one of these faculty physicians will be your primary caregiver during your clinic visits.
Because UTMB is a medical teaching facility, you may also talk with or be examined by other physicians, called residents or fellows, who are preparing to become specialists or sub specialists in a particular area of medicine. In addition, medical students from the UTMB School of Medicine often assist faculty physicians. All medical evaluations and care provided by residents, fellows, and medical students are coordinated and closely supervised by one or more of the clinics' faculty physicians.
