Welcome to the Long School of Medicine

Robert Hromas, M.D., FACP
Dean, Long School of Medicine at
UT Health San Antonio

 

The Long School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio is the largest trainer of physicians in South Texas, many of whom remain in San Antonio and the region to practice medicine. With full accreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the school annually educates more than 900 students and trains 800 residents.

The UT Health Physicians practice is the largest vertically integrated medical group in San Antonio with 850 physicians in more than 100 specialties. This is powerful for patients, because specialists who are at the top of their professions work together in close proximity. Only here can a patient see these specialists as part of one team, each talking to the other about the patient's case. The spectrum of health care extends from primary care in health maintenance and disease prevention, all the way through the most complex specialty care, such as liver transplants or curing cardiac arrhythmias.

The Long School of Medicine and UT Health San Antonio have a highly productive research enterprise replete with basic scientific discoveries and state-of-the-art clinical care. World leaders in Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, cancer, aging and kidney disease, to name a few fields, are translating molecular discoveries into new therapies for these diseases. School of Medicine faculty members regularly publish in the top journals in the nation. UT Health San Antonio is one of the few universities with a National Institutes of Health-funded cancer center, NIH-funded aging center and NIH-funded clinical trials center. Only a dozen institutions in the country have all three.

San Antonio is fertile ground for testing new clinical treatments because demographically it is what the nation will look like in 20 years. The School of Medicine's clinical, research and educational partnerships with University Health System, the military including the South Texas Veterans Health Care System, and numerous state and private partners enrich San Antonio's large biosciences and health care economic sector.

Thank you for your interest in the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine!
